It is a very easy and simple recipe and I was waiting for an occasion to make this and yesterday i finally made this chocolate muffins for my daughter Varsha’s birthday and the muffins turned out very soft and moist and the addition of Orange juice adds up an exotic flavor to the muffins.

  • Spoon the batter and bake for 12- 15 minutes.
  • Mine got done in 12 minutes.
  • Check with a clean tooth pick by inserting it in the middle of the muffin whether it is done or not. If it comes out clean then take out and cool it in a wire rack and  if not just bake for a minute or two .

Note:

  • The original recipe if for a cake recipe so you can try a cake also.
  • Do not replace baking soda with baking powder, both are not same and the result will not be the same.
  • I used Hersheys cocoa powder

  28. Hai Jeyashri,the muffins look yummilicious.Do we need a beater for folding the ingredients together.I never get the cakes or muffins soft and fluffy.I am wondering if the plain flour am using from ntuc is the problem.i buy the ordinary plain flour pagoda brand.the cookies are turning out good though.Appreciate if you could point out the mistake.
    Thanks a bunch,nisha

    1. Thanks for the feedback. You don't need a beater to fold the ingredients. Every time u fold, do it very gently in a circular motion. plain flour from fair price i use always. Never fold vigorously

    2. I really appreciate your replying. Will try it with yogurt.
      Thanks.

  29. Hai Jeyashri,

    I tried both muffins and nutella brownies.Everything was to the point.It turned out very soft, fluffy and moist.However it tasted gooey or dough uncooked..but when I inserted the toothpick it came out clean.The baking time and everything was perfect.I was delighted to see how soft it turned out but disappointed as I have no clue what I am doing wrong here.More like a Malaysian sweet I have seen here with glutinous rice...Please don help me out.Appreciate your time and advice.

  30. How many grams would 1 cup be?1 cup I read in your post is 200ml.
    Thx.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I never weighed in grams as i don't have a weighing scale.

    1. Yes everything was right though I am concerned abt the measurements.I used a cup that holds 200ml water for 1 cup flour.Perhaps that was the problem?
      Thanks a lot for the inputs.
