Quick Chocolate Muffins


These are incredibly moist and fluffy muffins. Like, super tender. I love it. I don’t think I have ever made such fluffy muffins (or cupcakes) before. These are technically naked cupcakes, but since they don’t have frosting, I have declared them muffins.

I decided at 11 pm today, on a Sunday night, that I wanted something incredibly chocolatey. I never make the situation easy for myself. I could have eaten a piece of chocolate.

Nope. I needed to BAKE SOMETHING.


I quickly skimmed some of my recipes, made a few mods, threw everything in a bowl and baked 2 batches of these muffins in an hour. I appeased my craving BEFORE midnight.

If you want something quick because you have guests are coming over last-minute, a forgotten bake-sale crept up on you or you are a late-night chocolate fiend like me, this recipe is for you.


  • 1 3/4 cup unbleached white flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • between 1 3/4 cup – 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup oil (I used olive)
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350’F
  2. Line muffin tray with paper liners**
  3. Sift all dry ingredients together in a large bowl
  4. In a smaller bowl, whip all wet ingredients together
  5. Pour wet ingredients in to dry, and mix until well combined, maybe 20-30 seconds
  6. Batter will be thinner, almost like pancake batter
  7. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in to each liner ***
  8. Bake at 350’F for 20-25 minutes.
  9. Insert toothpick in to centre, it will come out clean when they are done
  10. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving

This recipe makes 24 muffins

** I recommend using larger muffin liners, that sit above the tray top
*** If using smaller liners, you will need to pour less batter in to each one so you do not have them overfilled and overflow as they rise
