Breakfast in Bed Muffins

Today I woke up and decided to make Andrew some muffins that he said looked really good, for breakfast in bed. They were really yummy! They're kind of a pancake consistency with chocolate chips, but in muffin form. The recipe that I found says to make mini muffins but I don't have a mini muffin pan. It also says to just line the pan with cooking oil (I call it "spray release"), but I was all out, so I used cupcake liners. Even though the cupcake liners worked, it would definitely be better to use spray release because the melted chocolate chips stick to the liners.

Here is the recipe:

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.
  • In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.
I then poured some maple syrup in a bowl for the muffins to be dipped in. They were very scrumptious!!
