The Best Chocolate Chip Muffins. After over 30 years of baking this is still my favourite chocolate chip muffin recipe. Moist on the inside with crunchy edges on the muffin top and plenty of luscious chocolate morsels baked right in. A perfect muffin.
I like a good muffin top. No, I don’t have to call in Newman from Seinfeld to dispose of the muffin stumps, I like those too but to me, a perfect chocolate chip muffin should have a crunchy top and a perfectly baked interior that isn’t dry but is just a little denser than cake.
I’m not really partial to muffins that are too cake-like in texture; as a morning food it should be a little heartier than a tender cake. This recipe gets the balance just right.
The batter here will be somewhat lumpy but don’t let that bother you; it is as it should be. I also like to sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the batter of many kinds of muffins to create a sweet glossy crust but this step is of course, optional. These will make a great start to your weekend brunch!

The Best Chocolate Chip Muffins - after over 30 years of baking this is still my favourite chocolate chip muffin recipe. Moist on the inside with crunchy edges on the muffin top and plenty of luscious chocolate morsels baked right in. A perfect muffin.
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Sift together the flour and baking powder and set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract on high speed until foamy and slightly stiffened.
- Mix together the melted butter and vegetable oil in a measuring cup with a spout.
- Slowly add the oil and butter mixture to the egg mixture in a slow stream as the mixer continues to whisk.
- Mix together the whipping cream, milk and apple cider vinegar and add slowly to the mixing bowl continuing to mix but at a reduced speed.
- Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a rubber spatula being careful not to over mix. Don't worry about lumps in the batter, they are fine. When the dry ingredients are almost incorporated, gently fold in the chocolate chips.
- Spoon batter into well greased muffin tins, filling them to the top. If you like you can sprinkle about a teaspoon of sugar over the top of each muffin before baking.
- Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 20 - 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
