Best Ever Chocolate Muffin 巧克力妈芬

Best Ever Chocolate Muffin 巧克力妈芬

Muffin is always the last thing on the shelves that I would choose from a bakery. Without beautiful topping like their cupcake counterpart, or fanciful filling like bread, muffins were simply 'boring'.

Until one day, a colleague of mine decided to leave her job in order to further her studies. On her last day in the office, she brought to office boxes of homemade muffins. Believe it or not, that was probably the best memories I had about her. The muffins that she made totally changed my pre-conception about boring muffins. Biting down the dark colored, crackly top muffin, the moist within immediately striked me with the many chocolate chips melting in my mouth. The muffin was soft and velvety. With just enough sugar, the mellow bitterness from the chocolate was  lingering at the back of my mouth, prompting me to bite down some more. One wasn't enough.

Over the years, I wasn't able to find a muffin that is close to that. Until now, upon many trials and errors, referencing to even books on science of cooking, I had finally made muffins that I really love, and thus put an end to my search for the perfect muffin.

When the muffins were just out of the oven, it formed a layer of crust that was slightly crisp, and the middle was soft and moist with fine crumbs. The chocolate? Yes, they melted in the mouth the moment you pop it in. That, is the muffin that I love, and I hope you will love it too!

To make these muffins in a no-mixer way, you can use this quick and easy reverse creaming method. It makes my life so much easier with this one-bowl mixing trick! I will show you how to do it step-by-step in the following video:
