Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins


Nothing can be worst than a recipe gone wrong. And I’ve tried many recipes promising fluffy confections only to churn out dry, dense and chewy muffins worthy of a baseball bat.

This chocolate chip muffin recipe however is a go-to whenever I crave a simple treat. Small enough to satisfy a sweet tooth and extremely easy if you have 30 minutes to spare. The magic ingredient lending it a moist and fluffy crumb is none other than sour cream. Ever since baking Ina Garten’s lemon cake that calls for yogurt or sour cream, I know you can’t go wrong with a cake recipe that uses it. Every cake I’ve baked with sour cream thus far has turned out light and pillowy soft.

a fluffy crumb just the way I like my muffins

And when these babies come right out of the oven, its straight to chocolate heaven I go. I reckon you can put anything you want in them but chocolate is right on top of my list.
