SOUR CREAM CHOCOLATE MUFFINS AND PRETTY THINGS!
What's going on in your world lately?
While winter can be lacking in color,
the lavender pansies never disappoint...
they still show their glorious color on the patio!
One of the darling's favorite childhood memories
are his Mother's chocolate muffins!
I think he is going to be over the moon on these!
These are my latest new additions to Estelle's kitchen!
I have looked at embossed measuring spoons
and measuring cups for a long time now,
and these just spoke to me!
Oh, I think they are just gorgeous!
Too pretty to hide away in a drawer!
A perfect pairing with new farm style dish towels...
it doesn't take much to make this southern baker happy!
Now you are going to love this muffin recipe!
I have told this many times before,
but there were special Sunday nights
when the darling was growing up
when they had warm chocolate muffins for dinner...
served with Strawberry Jam and Cheddar Cheese...
strange combination I know.....
but he loved them!
SOUR CREAM CHOCOLATE MUFFINS
A scrumptious, moist, tasty muffin and full of chocolate goodness!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
Combine flour, sugar, 3/4 cup chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk egg, sour cream, milk, and vegetable oil in another bowl until smooth; pour into chocolate mixture and stir until batter is just blended. Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
Bake in preheated oven about 20 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
The prettiest girl in the world!
Y'all have a great weekend!
