It’s the last Monday of the month so that means it’s Muffin Monday! March has been a better month than February, which was a better month than January (pretty grim despite it being my birthday month) so I have even higher hopes for April. 

The brightest hope comes from the increasing number of people I love who have been able to get vaccinated against COVID-19, including yours truly.  But sadly, people are still succumbing to that terrible virus. According to my Sunday Chronicle yesterday, we’ve lost more that half a million precious lives altogether just in the United States and that breaks my heart. 

It’s small consolation but bake some muffins for someone you love. If you can’t find springtime chocolate chips, use normal ones. 

Springtime Chocolate Chip Muffins

I’ve been making this muffin recipe or adaptations thereof since 2005 because it is infinitely adaptable. This is the first time I’ve adjusted the ingredients to make only six muffins though. If you want the recipe for 12, check out my post from 2012, along with a list of possible add-ins. 

Ingredients
1 cup or 125g all purpose flour
1/3 cup or 66g sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup or 120ml milk
1/4 cup or 600ml canola or another light oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 cup or about 90g springtime semi-sweet chocolate chips

 
Method
Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C. Generously grease cups and top of 6-cup muffin pan or use paper liners. 

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, vanilla and egg. 


Add all the milk/egg mixture to flour mixture. Gently fold just until dry ingredients are moistened.   


Then fold in most of your springtime chocolate chips. Save a small handful for decoration. 


Divide your batter relatively evenly between the 6 muffin cups. Top with the reserved chocolate chips.

Bake 20-25 minutes in your preheated oven or until the muffins are golden.

Remove from oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
