Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Or... Mud Muffins. They truly look like mounds of mud. But they are oh-so-delicious. And completely easy to put together. They are great to serve as dessert with ice cream when you need a quick fix.

And they don't have eggs, so you get to lick the spoon after mixing the batter!


Chocolate Muffins

(makes 6 muffins)

1 cup Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
scant 1/4 cup Cocoa
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Buttermilk
1/8 cup Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Chocolate Chips (or a mix of Chocolate Chips and Nuts to equal 1 cup)

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

Combine all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, baking soda and salt). Add the buttermilk, oil and vanilla and stir till combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and/or nuts.

And you can taste the batter because there are NO EGGS!

Divide the batter equally (or as equally as possible) between greased muffin cups (if you're using a non-stick pan, you don't need to grease it).

Bake for 25-30 minutes.


Mmm. Delicious!


This is off to Madhuram @ Madhuram's Eggless Cooking for the Egg Substitute Event: Yogurt/Buttermilk.

THese look delicious Arundathi! I like the name mud muffins - they look so gooe and decadent!

Aparna said...

The "chocolate" and the "no eggs" jumped out me.:)
Maybe it looks like mud, but its chocolate and definitely gets my vote.

TBC said...

No eggs (although I do like the texture that eggs lend to a product like this) and not too much fat either! Looks good.:)

Divya Vikram said...

Wish I could pick one through my screen. Loved the line, you can lick the spoon since it has no eggs!!

Bharti said...

That looks faaaaabulous! Yum yum yum.

DEESHA said...

Arundathi said...


Thanks everyone. Yes it was rich, delicious and decadent.

Churning the Word Mill - Never noticed that. Yes, it has only baking soda and it turned out fine. I don't know much about baking to know why it doesn't have bak.powder? hmm - wonder what baking powder is meant for in a recipe! will get back to you!

Madhuram said...

That looks fabulous Arundathi. Baking powder is a combination of an acid and alkali (mostly baking soda) which makes the baked goods to rise. Was this recipe eggless originally? If yes, since it has buttermilk already (which is an acidic ingredient) that along with baking soda does the job of baking powder. This is my opinion and I also don't know much about the science behind baking.

Thanks for sending it to the event. Since I'm in the process of moving, I'm not able to acknowledge it immediately.

Archana said...

I just know I have to try this! It is mouthwatering,and with my new foudn love for baking - this is a must try! Thanks Arundhati! Also really enjoyed reading you other blog on Rediscovering Chennai! A pleasure and absolutely addictive!

Ishani said...

Arundathi said...

Madhuram - Thanks so much for the science behind the baking soda! That really helped.

Archana - Thanks a lot. It is definitely decadent. Glad you liked the other blog!

Ishani - Thanks.

Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella said...

I have to admit that I lick the spoon even when I use eggs (the eggs are fine here). They looks scrumptiously chocolatey! :)

Arundathi said...

Lorraine - Oh believe me that if the eggs were fine here, I'd be licking it too! :) Thanks!

sushmita said...

Arundathi said...


Sushmita - scant meaning scant cup - ie not filled up.
