Jesse’s Mom’s Chocolate Muffins

j

This recipe has been living in the recipe folder of my email box since March of 2007.  It was then that my former colleague, Katherine, provided it to me.  You see, the mom of Jesse, her boyfriend,  made the most amazing chocolate muffins.  Katherine would bring them to work on a regular basis and she was always kind enough to share.

The shiny tops of Jesse’s mom’s muffins have that perfect chewy texture that houses rich, dense, chocolaty cake strewn with chocolate chips.  These babies are nuggets of muffin heaven.   After the hours and hours I have spent during my life baking in the kitchen, I find it baffling that a recipe that is so straightforward and simple can really yield a product this delicious!

 Jesse’s mom has got it going on.  

(And you can too!)

Jesse’s Mom’s Chocolate Muffins:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1  1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely ground coffee
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 handfuls chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, yogurt, milk, and sugar.  Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder and coffee grinds.  Whisk until combined.  Stir in the melted butter and chocolate chips.

Bake in a muffin tin lined with papers for 15-22 minutes, or until a skewere inserted into the center comes out clean.
