Nigella's Choco-Chip Muffins

Yes, yes, we all lust for Chocolate and we do lust a wee bit more when the culinary queen Nigella Lawson, whips up some Chocolate delicacies.So it was one of those days, when Hubby was working some extended hours at the workplace. I had already finished prepping two Mochas(Banana Blossoms) and cooking them with some coconut and shrimps, and still had some time in my hands. So I decided to indulge in some lust.And who else to follow when we talk of lust and indulgence: Nigella herself. With exactly 40 minutes to spare, I whipped up some Choco-Chip Muffins, for the super tired techie about to reach home.The tired face broke into a beaming smile when he reached home, and was greeted with the aroma of freshly baked muffins.

Makes about 12 muffins
Muffin pan lined with paper liners
Granulated Sugar: 3/4 cup
All purpose Flour: 1 3/4 cup
Cocoa Powder: 3 tbsp
Salt: 1 pinch
Vanilla Extract: 1 tbsp
Egg: 1 large
Canola Oil/ vegetable Oil: 1/3 cup
Baking Powder: 2 tbsp
Semi Sweet Choco-Chips: 3/4 cup plus some more for sprinkling on top
Milk: 1 cup

Pre-heat the oven to 400F. Line the muffin pan with paper liners.

Sift the dry ingredients through a fine sieve and mix them well.

In a another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together and whisk them well.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and add the choco-chips and whisk everything together.The batter will be quite thick.

Scoop out the batter into the paper lined muffin tin, filling only upto 3/4th of each. Sprinkle some more choco-chips on top.

As Nigella says, bake the muffins in a preheated oven for about 20 minute or until they are dark, risen and springy.

Enjoyyyy !!!
