  • 150 g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 dsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 40 g caster sugar
  • 120 ml milk
  • 50 g butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 50 g chocolate chips plain (semi-sweet)


  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 200C
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl mix together the egg, sugar, milk and melted butter.
  • Return the dry ingredients to the sieve and sift them straight on to the egg mixture (this double sifting is essential because there won’t be much mixing going on).
  • Take a large spoon and fold the dry ingredients into the wet ones - quickly, in about 15 seconds.
  • Don't be tempted to beat or stir, and dent be alarmed by the rather unattractive, uneven appearance of the mixture: this is what will ensure that the muffins stay light.
  • Now fold the chocolate drops into the mixture - again with a minimum of stirring, just a quick folding in.
  • Divide the mixture between the muffin cups about 1 heaped teaspoon in each, and bake on a high shelf in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, until well risen.
  • Then remove the muffins from the oven and cool in the tins for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling tray.
