Stuffin myself with Muffin

Best Blogger Tips
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Enough has been said and written about it. It provides the body with the right fuel to keep us going through the day. And as said, “Well begun is half done”.

The weekend happened to be a long one, with the Ugadi festival (Telugu New Year ) on Monday and it was just the break I needed to get away from the maddening workplace. Since this was an unwinding and catching movies weekend, there was to be no golf and come Monday the skies opened up and rain gods again poured down.

The weather was perfect for some good food, and I had been contemplating making some muffins for a long time. Today was just the day to go ahead and have them ready for breakfast.

I had this good recipe from which I had tried out in the past and felt the need to make some adjustments. Firstly, it was for strawberry muffins and I wanted to make some chocolate ones, secondly, the sugar quantity prescribed in the recipe was extremely low. The muffins per that came out, so to say, bland. So I made my own adjustments and made the chocolate muffins …it surely was a good breakfast :)

For the original recipe you can visit the site and have a look at that one too. Just remember my words on the sugar part.

Chocolate Muffins


2 1/4 cup sifted refined flour
2 cup powdered sugar
3 tsp. baking powder

5 tsp cocoa powder

½ tsp Eno (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla essence

1 tsp chocolate syrup (Hershey’s)
1 chopped chocolate


1. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder, eno and salt.

2. Beat eggs. Blend in oil, vanilla essence, milk & chocolate syrup.

3. Add the liquid to dry ingredients. Stir quickly just until moistened.

4. Fold in the chocolate chips.

5. Spoon into well greased muffin tins.

6. Bake at 220 degrees for 25 minutes or until done.

7. Remove to wire rack. Serve.
