Deep Dark Chocolate Chunk Muffins
adapted from A Passion for Baking
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa powder, measured and sifted
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened- I used Israeli gvina levanah
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup rice or regular milk
1 cup chocolate chips or chunks
Preheat your oven to 350. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners. Set aside.
Sift together all of the dry ingredients and set aside.
These muffins are quite easy to handle- turn them on their sides to cool and prevent them from steaming themselves. Serve! Feel free to dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with melted chocolate or white chocolate for a more jazzed up treat.
