Chocolate Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate Chocolate Muffins

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably "special dark")
  • ½ tablespoon espresso powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sparkling sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 and line a muffin pan with 12 liners.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, espresso powder, salt and baking soda.  Add the eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, oil and vanilla and whisk vigorously until well combined; batter will be very thick.  Stir in the chocolate chips. 

Divide the batter between the liners and sprinkle the top of the batter with the sparkling sugar.  Bake for 17-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.  Transfer muffins to a wire rack, cool for 5 minutes and serve warm with lemon curd or your favorite jam.


Yields 12 muffins.
