Tips to make a double batch of chocolate muffins.

I make at least 28-30 of these chocolate muffins by doubling the ingredients and they come out perfect every single time.

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Just make sure to remember that you have to double the ingredients mentioned below.
  • Mixing the batter can be tricky as you want to keep it to a minimum so take your time and do it slowly.
  • If you are using a smaller oven, churning out this many chocolate muffins can be tiring as each batch will take 20-25 minutes so if you are making these for breakfast, start early.
  • When you bake the 2nd batch, 5 minutes into the baking time, peak into the oven to see if they are done early as the oven might is already hot with the first batch of the muffins.
  • It also helps to have two or three muffin trays.

Utensils and appliances needed to make the chocolate muffins.

  • Standard muffin tray.
  • Muffin paper cups or silicone cups.
  • Sieve
  • a large bowl
  • A medium-sized bowl.
Beginner’s tips on making fudgy and moist chocolate muffins.
  • Have all the ingredients ready to make the chocolate muffins. 
  • Before using the baking powder and baking soda check the expiry date. 
  • While combining ingredients, use lighter movements, by that I mean to avoid any vigorous whisking or beating but use a folding movement. the more you meddle with the chocolate muffin batter the denser it gets.
  • Do not bake the muffins for too long, although I’ve given the temperature and time to bake, the altitude and outside temperature will have an effect on the baking time and heat. 
  •  You know how your oven operates so keep an eye on the muffins. you might need to take them out early or late by a few minutes.  keep in mind the remaining heat once you take the chocolate muffins out adds to the cooking time as well.
  • Insert a toothpick into the muffin if it comes clean then the chocolate muffins are done.
Here’s how you measure the flour for the chocolate muffins. 

Using a regular spoon, add flour to the measuring cup and then with a knife level the flour so there is no excess flour in the measuring cup.

    Do you use Artificial vinegar or Heinz White Vinegar Please reply quickly I've been dying to know this because I want to make this recipe so bad.

    Hi Maheshika, thank you for your patience. I used artificial vinegar. any type of white vinegar would do as long as it doesn't have a strong smell to it. Regards J

    These turned out pretty yummy! Note that it doesn't tell you when to add the cocoa or salt. I added it in the step with the flour. Also, I didn't add quite as much cocoa as it called for and they were plenty chocolatey.

    These instructions need to be edited. There is no listing for the amount of baking soda though it says to add it. And, it never says when to add the cocoa powder or the salt.
