LET’S TALK INGREDIENTS

The ingredients used are simple. No fancy ingredients are used to make this fabulous muffins. You only need a few basic ingredients which are readily available in most if our pantry to make this absolutely awesome vanilla chocolate chunk muffins.

● Flour – The recipe uses all purpose flour.

● Baking Powder & Baking Soda – Used both the leavening agents to give to create a significant rise.

● Salt – A dash of salt added to enhance the flavor.

● Curd/Yogurt – Another key ingredient to achieve the softness and lightness in cakes and muffins especially on eggless bakes. I have used plain thick curd aka yogurt as a substituteto egg. I recommend using fresh curd which is not very sour.

● Sugar – Used granulated sugar to sweeten these muffins.

● Oil – Sunflower oil is used in the recipe. Oil produces a moist and tender muffin.

● Milk – Milk adds plenty of moisture and lightens up the crumb. I recommend using whole milk for the extra richness.

● Vanilla Essence – For the added flavor use vanilla essence. I use vanilla in most of my cakes as it’s a versatile flavor which goes well with most things.

● Chocolate – The recipe uses dark chocolate. These wouldn’t be chocolate chunk muffins without plenty of chocolate chunks! I chopped the dark chocolate into chunks for this recipe, but you can use mini chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips as per your preference and availability.

Wrap them individually in plastic wrap and place them in a resealable bag or airtight container. For serving just take out the muffins from the freezer and thaw them in room temperature.

NOTES: USEFUL TIPS AND SUBSTITUTION

● Always preheat your oven. It is very important to bake any baking goodies in preheated oven.

● For the yogurt, to make this cake vegan you can use non-dairy yogurt or 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. For the milk, you use non-dairy milk like almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk or simply use water.

● To make this cake gluten-free I recommend using a gluten-free flour or mix of gluten-free flours.

● For the flour, you may substitute whole wheat flour with the same amount of all purpose flour or 50-50 % of both. You can also use pastry flour.

● For the oil, I’ve used sunflower oil. You can use any flavorless or neutral tasting oil like vegetable oil, canola oil etc instead of sunflower oil.

● You may substitute the oil with 100 gms butter.

● You may substitute the brown sugar with refined sugar or any other healthier sweeteners like cane sugar, jaggery, coconut sugar etc.

● You can use ½ teaspoon eno instead of baking soda.

● You can also add a mixture of any dry fruits and nuts of your choice.

● All ingredients should be at room temperature.

● Sieve the flour or dry ingredients, this helps in getting a nice texture to the cake.

● Each oven reacts differently so baking time may differ since the temperature varries from oven to oven.

● Do not open the oven atleast before 15 minutes of baking and frequently opening oven to check the cake while baking is in process is not advisable.

● Be careful not to over bake the muffins. The muffins are done baking when a toothpick or skewer test past through.

● Stir the batter by gently and mix until just combined. A spoon or spatula does the work. Be careful not to over mix the batter, as that can produce tough muffins.
