The recipe calls for simple ingredients like milk, yogurt, vegetable oil, flour and chocolate. And there are also a few tips I want to share with you.
Fresh and room temperature ingredinets
First, use fresh and room temperature ingredients. Why should we use room temperature ingredients? Certain ingredients like butter, eggs, milk or yogurt must be at room temperature. When these ingredients are at room temperature, they form an emulsion which traps air. While baking, that trapped air expands and the result is a fluffy and tender baked good. And we all want to obtain that, right? So, if the recipe calls for room temperature ingredients, use room temperature ingredients.
You should mix just until all the ingredients are combined. It’s normal to see a few lumps into the batter. For tall muffins, you should fill the muffin cups all the way to the top. Also. baking temperature is pretty important. You should bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 220°C (425°F) , then for about 25 minutes at 180°C (350°F).So, that being said, let’s bake a batch of chocolate chunk muffins. They make the perfect breakfast along with your morning coffee or along with a glass of warm milk.

Make the toothpick test: insert a toothpick in the center of a muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are done. If not, you should bake them for a few more minutes.
