Whoever invented muffins… is a genius. Because they essentially have the same ingredients as cake, except they’re acceptable to eat for breakfast. How innovative. Anyway, double chocolate muffins are so good with iced coffee.

recipe (makes 3-4 jumbo muffins):

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) buttermilk—or alternatively, add 1 tsp of white vinegar to regular milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup (62ml) vegetable oil
  • splash of vanilla essence
  • 1 cup (150g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (35g) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • pinch of salt
  • dark chocolate chunks


  1. Combine buttermilk, egg, oil, and vanilla and one bowl and whisk.
  2. Combine flour, instant coffee, cocoa powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in another bowl.
  3. Combine wet & dry ingredients.
  4. Fold in dark chocolate chunks and then scoop evenly into a muffin pan lined with baking paper.
  5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. You’re done!
