Double Chocolate Muffins | Recipe

Need I say more than Double Chocolate Muffins?

I'm going to share with you this incredibly yummy double chocolate muffin recipe but again I must state this is not my own, I found it online from the Dr Oetker website, so I am merely sharing the recipe love because it is good. 

A little while ago you may have seen my Fruit Burst Muffin recipe, those muffins were pretty damn healthy. But I had the devil in me today and wanted something massively indulgent so I opted to bake these Double Chocolate Muffins.

They look good don't they?

I just fancied something really sweet and I already had most of the ingredients anyway in my little baking cupboard so I thought I would take an hour to just faff around and bake. Now lets move onto the important stuff to bake these gorgeous treats. 


  • 275 g Plain Flour 
  • Baking Powder - 4 tsp
  • 60 g Cocoa Powder 
  • 75 g Caster Sugar 
  • Medium Eggs x 2
  • 225 ml Milk 
  • 110 g Butter 
  • Vanilla Extract -1 tsp

I know what you're thinking, I haven't added how much chocolate chips to add and this is where I get a bit creative, I don't like those store bought pre-made chocolate chips, I like chunks of real chocolate. So I bought two large bars of chocolate one white and one milk and used about half a bar of each and just chopped them up into chunks. I don't always like sticking to a recipe rigidly I like to improvise a little and add a little twist. I also used soft brown sugar in my recipe. 


Sieve the flour, baking powder a cocoa powder into one bowl. Then in a separate bowl mix together, eggs, milk, sugar, butter and vanilla extract. There is quite a lot of milk in this recipe so I would advise adding the wet ingredients slowly to the powdered ingredients. The mix should be really gooey and a bit lumpy then add the chocolate chunks. 

Put into muffin cases in a muffin tray and whack it in the oven for around 20-25 mins on gas mark 7. 

Then Enjoy!

This recipe makes 9 really nice muffins, they're actually surprising very light not too dense and a little spongy which is really nice.  I actually added a little extra to the ingredients so that I could make 12 muffins. The reason I use chocolate bars because I love the taste of my favourite chocolate in the muffin, most chocolate cooks fine even if it isn't cooking chocolate so I always bake with good quality chocolate.

I really love baking and I don't do it enough, I'm going to try and make sure I bake at least once a month. 

Let me know if you have any great cake/muffin recipes for me to try next month?


  1. Those make me hungry! And I just ate some chocolate-walnut bars that I baked yesterday, so that's saying something. I'm all about the chunky chocolate over premade chips as well :) x
