Chocolate Chip Muffins

These double chocolate chip muffins make the perfect just out-of-the-oven treat.

Dr. Oetker recently got in touch with us to see if we would like the opportunity to work with them, you may know that Emily and I love to bake together, so of course we said yes. Anything cake related and Emily can’t wait to make it, the only problem I often have, is Emily likes to do it all by herself, she really dislikes it if you try to help her. She loves to add all the ingredients herself and even crack the eggs which can get very messy, very fast.

With Father’s Day just around the corner, Dr. Oetker have lots of yummy recipes on their website to help you create the perfect thing for your dad. Recipes such as Chocolate Guinness Cake, Caramel and chai spice cake, and Whiskey and Walnut cake just to name a few. We decided that we would make double chocolate chip muffins for Sam as an early Father’s Day gift. Emily couldn’t wait till her daddy got home to show him the cakes she had made.

275g Plain Flour
3 Dr. Oetker Baking Powder Sachets
2 Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powdere
115g Caster Sugar
2 Medium Eggs
225ml Milk
115g Butter
5ml Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
75g Dr. Oetker Dark Chocolate Chips
75g Dr. Oetker White Chocolate Chips

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
2. Put the muffin cases into the muffin tin, Emily picked some dinosaur especially for her daddy.
3. Sift the Flour, Cocoa and Baking Powder into a bowl. Stir in the sugar, dark and white chocolate chips and make a well in the centre.
4. Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter together and pour it into the well, then stir to form a stiff, well-blended batter.
5. Divide the batter between the muffin cases. Smooth the tops slightly and bake for 20-25 minutes, until well risen and firm to the touch.
6. Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool. These muffins are best served warm.

Emily really enjoyed making these muffins, the recipe was super simple and she was able to do the whole thing from start to finish by herself. Emily loved the fact the baking powder and cocoa powder came in sachets as she could rip them open herself and add them to the mixture. We didn’t have to measure out a certain amount, which is the part Emily usually struggles with as she gets inpatient. Obviously her favourite part was eating the left over mixture while the muffins were baking.

Once the muffins were baked she couldn’t wait to tuck into them, I would definitely recommend trying them while they are warm, as both me and Emily preferred them while they were still warm, and they go perfectly with a cup of tea, or milk in Emily’s case. We also have a popcorn fudge brownie recipe that we will be posting soon, so keep a eye out for that if you fancy it.

- we were sent the ingredients for this recipe in exchange for the blog post, however all opinions are my own.


  1. yum! Muffins are so tasty and great to make with little ones. I want to bake some now!! x
