Muffins are such a great thing, don’t you think?

I mean, they are soft, fluffy and are portable. Portable baked goods are the best.

So, for my first post on this brand new baking blog, I’m sharing a family favorite for portable breakfast food: Chocolate Chip Muffins.

These muffins are quite amazing. The original recipe is for giant bakery style muffins, but, I changed it just a smidgen and make regular size instead.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour
  • Baking soda
  • Baking powder
  • Butter
  • Buttermilk
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Mini chocolate chips

Just a few recipe notes:

  • If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand, simply mix 1 cup of milk with 1/4 cup of vinegar and let it sit for 5 minutes before mixing into batter.
  • Don’t over mix your batter! Lumps are OK.
  • If you do wish to make 12 jumbo muffins, increase your baking powder to 1 TBSP. Baking time will be the same.
