Hot Mormon Muffins: November Edition

Hard to believe it's already time for another Mormon Muffin post. Is it just me or do the days just fly by at this time of the year? One minute it's Labour Day, the next you're toasting the new year. Maybe that's part of why I like baking so much--it forces you to slow down and enjoy the moment. Helping you enjoy this month's moment is Sallee, 34, and mother of three, and her CTR Chocolate Chip muffins. (Click photos to enlarge.)

The essentials:

Liquids (egg, milk, oil):

The dough is coming together:

Never too much chocolate!

Sallee's CTR Chocolate Chip

[My notes/changes in brackets]

1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups [all purpose] flour
1/2 cup [granulated] sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup [semisweet] chocolate chips

Beat egg and stir in milk and oil. Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened [I added the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mixed until it reached the consistency in photo #4; then stirred in the chocolate chips). Batter should be lumpy.

Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 minutes [in my case, 18-19 minutes would have worked] at 400F [200c] or until golden brown.

Makes 12.

My Verdict

Chocolate chip muffins are one of my favourites and these rank up there. They were a touch dry but that could have been due to slight over-baking. If it's a concern you could always add a little more oil. The only things I might change would be to sprinkle coarse sugar on top (in imitation of Tim's addictive CC Muffins) or to switch the chips with chunks.
