How to Bake Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

After not baking for so long, I wanted to get back in to it with something I haven’t made much of before. In the end I decided to go with muffins. I have made muffins before, but I didn’t have a proper tin, or the right cases, so they turned out to be more like cupcakes.

This recipe is from Dr Oetker, and it’s different from anything I’ve done before. The recipe I’ve used is pretty much the same, but I didn’t have enough chocolate chips, so I had to improvise with what I had.


275g Plain Flour

1 Tbsp Baking Powder

50g Cocoa Powder

115g Caster Sugar

2 Medium Eggs

225ml Milk

115g Melted Butter

1sp Vanilla Extract

75g Chocolate Chips

75g White Chocolate Chips


Preheat the oven to 190°C/ 170°C fan oven/ 375°F/ gas mark 5. Prepare the muffin tray with the cases.

Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in to a bowl. Next stir in the sugar, and add the chocolate chips. This is when I realised I didn’t have any white ones, so I had to use star sprinkles.

Combine and make a well in the centre.

In a separate bowl mix the eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla together. Once everything has been mixed pour in the centre of the well. I melted the butter in the microwave, removing it every 10 seconds to mix until it had fully melted.

I thought the mixture would be too runny with all of that liquid, but after some mixing it turned out fine. It should end up as a stiff batter.

Divide the mix equally and smooth the top over. I baked mine for around 19-20 minutes, and they could have done with a tiny bit less. The recipe says 25 minutes, but I always take these times with a pinch of salt, as my oven is normally hot enough to go for less when I finally get around to putting them in.

To check if they had cooked I used a cocktail stick to stab the centre. If it comes out clean it’s done. You can also tell by the feel of the top, if it’s well risen and firm then it’s good to go.

Transfer to wire rack to cool, and then store as desired.

There we have it, that’s how you bake Double Chocolate Chip Muffins!

What’s your favourite thing to bake?

    These muffins look and sound so so good! I love baking muffins, cupcakes, and cakes, especially anything that’s chocolate. I love that this has white chocolate in it too because that’s my favorite kind of chocolate. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I’ll have to give it a try!

      Thank you, I’m so glad you think so! Cakes are definitely one of the best things to make! Be sure to use bigger white chocolate chunks than I did haha, so you get the proper benefit! I hope you love them!xx

    • 5th August 2018 / 9:52 pm

      Thank you so much! Baking is so much fun, and definitely something a lot of people seemed to have grown up doing, or done a couple of times with family. Haha, sorry about that!xx

    Okay WHY am I reading this post at nearly midnight?! I now want to bake some yummy muffins and just stuff my face. Absolutely ADORE the look of these and I’m such a huge fan of anything chocolate. In fact, the chocolatier, the better! I love the cute little white stars and I definitely need to bake these soon with my other half. Although I don’t think I’ll be able to resist eating nearly all of them…

      Haha, probably the worst time to start craving chocolate muffins! I hope you love them if you give them a go, and have fun baking them too! Oh don’t worry, they didn’t last long here either xx

    Oh my gosh those cookies look so amazing! I am a major chocoholic so I got major cravings just from that picture of the chocolate chips (luckily I’ve got half a pint of vegan chocolate chip cookie dough left, that I’m most definitely gonna go for right after I type this haha). I cook a lot, but I actually don’t bake and have never baked anything from scratch before, but I really want to!

    • 6th August 2018 / 10:34 pm

      Thank you! They’re actually muffins, so a little different to cookies- both are really great though! Hope you’re enjoying the vegan cookie dough! Baking from scratch is a lot of fun and feels very rewarding too!xx

    • 6th August 2018 / 10:34 pm
