During one of my holidays in the states i really fell in love with muffins especially chocolate chip, but since in my country muffins where still a rare item(poor me)i couldn't have any off them back at home. Luckily nowadays there are more and more bakerys that sell them. Some of that are quit nice but not as good as in my memories, so i wanted to try to bake them myself. I ran in to another disappointment, no chocolate chips/morsels could be found.
Then finally i found this dutch american webshop, they sold chocolate chips.
So here are my muffins...
(makes 12 muffins)
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 cup sweet condensed milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup(or bag of 170g)semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
Preheat oven to 190c(375 f). Position rack in center of oven. Butter, or line with paper liners, 12 muffin cups.
Whisk together in a large bowl the milk, eggs ande vanilla extract.
Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in another large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips. Fold the wet ingredients and the melted butter, into the dry ingredients using a rubber spatula. Just stir only until the ingredients are combined. Do not overmix the batter or tough muffins will result.
Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter, using two spoons or an ice cream scoop. In a small bowl combine the vanilla sugar with the ground cinnamon and then sprinkle a little on each muffin. Place in the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 18 - 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pan.
