Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins


Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins

Lately, I’ve been bitten by the baking bug. Yes, its the Christmas season and will be on a baking spree over the next few days, baking cookies, muffins and cakes. Yesterday, I baked a batch of Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins which I bookmarked from Divya’s blog who found this tasty treat at Baking Bites. These addictive muffins have a subtle flavor of coffee and a pronounced taste of chocolate.

  9. Sue says:

    Lovely. I have some good coffee I want to use up and I just, er, happen to have chocolate chips and I also *happen* to have two Christmas parties coming up. I shall be keeping a close eye on your site. 😉

    (OK, I confess none of this is a coincidence apart from the coffee. I went mad and bought crazy amounts of baking supplies!)

    • Sue says:

      Made them. They look great. Did your batter turn out thick too? I’d forgotten cocoa and coffee together would be very drying. It was a pain dropping tablespoonfuls into the lined cases, but they seem to have come out OK. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. Sanjeeta kk says:

    Love the chocolaty color and texture of these cute muffins. Would try the egg less version soon.

  11. Ann says:

  17. swathi says:

    Liked all your recipes, I would like to try them but I have problem with measurements particularly in baking recipes, can you give them in grams, it will be easy for me to follow correctly.

  18. kavitha says:

    Its sounds so easy ! :)

    what exactly does ” bake ” mean ? i have a microwave and have tried baking cake on microwave mode. It came out less than perfect. if its micro then its 20 minutes at Hi power ? I guess that would burn the little thing out :)

    please advise

    • Sue says:

      Hi Kavitha. When I baked in my microwave I usually needed 5-8 minutes at 900W for almost all cakes. 5 minutes seem to suffice for cupcakes and some bundts, while most sponges (say 1-2″ high when fully cooked) were comfortably done at 7-8 minutes. I hope that helps.

      My general rule of the thumb was when the recipe asked for the cake to be baked at approximately 200 degrees C for 45 minutes, it would need 8 minutes on microwave mode at 900W. Remember to let the cake rest for a few minutes before you test the centre because microwaves generate heat from within the centre of the food so the dish continues to cook even after the timer goes off.

      Lastly, always reduce the flour if you’re baking in the microwave (say if the non-microwave recipe called for 175 gm, I’d use 150 gm) because microwaves dry the cakes out unlike the conventional ovens.

      • Sailu says:

        Thanks for pitching in, Sue. :)

        • Sue says:

          Happy to help a fellow microwave-r. :)

          • Samidha says:

            Thanks Sue…i was abt to put forth the question as to how to bake cakes in m/w ovens which does not have temp settings at all. I got one as a gift and was’nt really sure whether i wld b able to bake with it at all. One query though…which kind of baking trays/pans do we use? as i know we cant use any metal pans. so what do we use for cakes/cookies and cupcakes? thanks in advance
            and Shailaja di..ur recipes make me drool all the time..

            • Samidha says:

              Sue/Shailaja di…could you plz reply to my above query? im looking forward to bake a cake thsi christmas…and im sure would need a couple of trials before i bake a perfect one :)

              • Sue says:

                Samidha, I used glass. Glass casserole lids, shallow casserole dishes or baking dishes. Please don’t use plastic. Even the microwave-safe plastic ware has been known to melt.

                Cakes will not form a hard crust in microwaves, nor will their sides brown. So don’t get alarmed if yours don’t. I never did bake cookies in mine so I can’t tell you about that.

                • Samidha says:

                  Thanks a lot Sue…this should help. I have microwave safe glass bowls…let me try baking in one of those..Thanks again

    hi shailu,
    wonderful recipe. just want to know which cups to be used in oven to fill the batter. didnt understand muffin liners, being a beginner i have lot of doubts, hope u reply..

    • Sailu says:

      Muffin liners or paper cupcake liners. You will get them in any major departmental store or you can find out from your local baker as to where they get their liners from. Alternately, you can use aluminum molds or muffin baking tray. Just grease and dust with flour before pouring the batter.

  22. Liby says:
