Mini Choco Chip Pancake Muffins

Love them
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Now these were yummy. I wanted to create something easy, not too messy, that required ingredients I already had on hand and that could still be devoured a few days later. I came across this recipe on Bakerella's site (no worries everyone, the comparisons have stopped!) and it fell perfectly into the above four categories. So I had to make 'em. They are too cute not to!
Make sure you whisk all of your dry ingredients together. Whisk Whisk Whisk.
Chocolate Chips
And stir in your chocolate chips by hand; no mixer needed for this recipe!
The recipe called for pure maple syrup but I only had the good old stand-by, Aunt Jemima. She makes me smile. Everytime I see her face on that sticky bottle of goodness. You only need two tablespoons in the batter but I could have added a little more and these things would have been better than perfect.
Grease your mini muffin pan. Grease it GOOD. Or your muffies won't come out!
Then bake them in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 9 minutes or until the edges get a tad brown. No longer though, or the muffies won't taste their best. Let them cool a bit in their pan them move them to a wire rack to cool completely. If you're anything like me, you will pop a few in your mouth to silently enjoy the melted chocolate chips against your cheek. Mmmm.
Going, going, going...
Gone! Nom nom nom....But nothing tastes as delicious as mini treats with a cold refreshing glass of milk. I drink about 3 litres of milk a week for all of you who wanted to know a juicy tid bit about me. I love milk. If all I had to drink was milk for the rest of my life, I would be perfectly content.
Mini Choco Chip Muffins
1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tbsp sugar
2/3 cups buttermilk
1 egg
2-4 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp melted unsalted butter
1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a mini muffin pan really well. In a large bowl combine your flour, baking powder and soda, salt and sugar and stir with a wire whisk until combined. Mix your wet ingredients in another bowl until just combined and then combine the two mixture together. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand and divide the batter evenly among the mini wells. Bake for 9 minutes or until done and let cool before enjoying. Feel free to serve with syrup or to eat as a snack! Enjoy.

Happy Baking, and until next time, Rhiannon

YUMMY!!! I love mini muffins for my girls (okay, for me too). They're great for kids b/c they don't get a big giant muffin and lose their appetites. :) I am looking forward to your tutorial. :) Glad you are staying!!!

DollFace Delights said...

Okay, those muffins look so good (and way better than Bakerella's...I'm just saying!!)

You must try luster dust, it is the best thing EVER. I've played around with it my last few cakes and I loved the results.

I want some of those cutters, so I will head over to your sponsers website to place an order.
