It is so easy to vary the recipe too. I added some coffee, figs and lindt balls to mine and they were a taste sensation!

Here's the lady herself to tell you how easy it is to make these delicious treats!


Here is Nigella's Choc Chip muffins recipe via Food Network.com

Serving Size : Makes 12

Ingredients
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons best quality cocoa powder
3/4 cup superfine sugar
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling
1 cup milk
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions
Special equipment: Muffin tin with paper muffin cases
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar, and 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips into a large bowl. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, remembering that a lumpy batter makes the best muffins. Spoon into the prepared muffin cases. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top and then bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark, risen and springy.

Enjoy with a cup of tea and your favourite magazine!

  2. What a perfect combo, tea, chocolate & a magazine to read. This is something I love to do. I am honestly not a muffin person but I would try chocolate anytime.

  7. That Nigelle receipe is one of my staple favourites too - it always works, no-matter what tinkering I do to change the flavours. Maybe I'll whip up a batch this weekend....I definitely like the sound of the lindt balls in the middle.
    Happy Friday.

  53. Miss Nat,

    divine invention and adding the coffee - you had me at hello (one of my favourite scents in the world is coffee).

    I think they would be the tastiest muffin tops in the world too, so crunchy in the right places.

    wishing you a lovely day
