eggless-chocolate-muffins
     Chocolate muffins are loved by almost every one of us. I wanted to try my hands on muffins for long time, but could not decide on a recipe. I bookmarked a recipe but it had complicated measurements, so at last minute, I got the recipe from here. And the recipe dint disappoint me. It came out good. It tasted similar to the eggless chocolate cake. With simple ingredients, it does comes out sinfully delicious. It is very easy too, that beginners in baking, like me, can try it out without giving a second thought. The muffins were soft and chocolaty, do try it out yourself to believe me!

eggless-chocolate-muffin

 

Ingredients ( for 8 muffins)

All purpose flour 3/4 cup
Coco powder 2 & 1/2 tblsp
Sugar 1/2 cup
Baking soda( bicarbonate of soda) 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Oil 1/4 cup
Cold water 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Lemon juice / vinegar 1 tsp

Method

  1. Sieve flour, coco and baking soda together tice to ensure even mixing and then mix in the salt and sugar. In another bowl, mix oil, cold water and vanilla. Reserve the lemon juice.Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients well until sugar gets dissolved.chocolate1
  2. Pre heat oven to 190o C .. Before you are just going to bake, mix in the lemon juice and stir well. Spoon the batter to the muffin liners in the baking tray. Fill just 3/4th.chocolate2 
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Better keep checking after 20 minutes. Mine got baked after 23 minutes itself. Cool down the muffins in a wire rack, after carefully taking out from the baking tray.chocolate3
Enjoy the chocolaty muffins. Give a day for the flavours to get incorporated well, though it tastes good immediately. So if you want to eat tomorrow, make today and keep!

Notes
  • I used fine grain sugar, better to use it as it gets dissolved easily.
  • You can use 1/2 tsp of orange zest to enhance the flavour.
  • Bake a day before you want to eat.

  64. Which oil can we use for cakes??

    ReplyDelete
  65. i just put the cake in the oven and realized i forgot to add the lemon juice :( :(
    im hope its edible ;(

    ReplyDelete
  66. Aparna,

    you can use vegetable oil or sunflower oil. I used sunflower oil.

    Sushila,

    Lemon juice will just affect the texture of the cake. It will be still edible!

  68. hey, iv just got to thank u very much for ur receipes. im vegetarian and iv always had to watch my friends eating cakes without me, and now i can bake my own.lol. thanks. by the way, when u say coco, u mean chocolate(cocoa) right? just checking or is there something powdered special for baking. because, God knows they have all sorts of stuff now.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks Dhanisha for your feedback...coco powder is the pure coco not the eating chocolate,coco powder is specially for cooking and baking...

  70. Hi Rajeswari, which microwave you use for baking? You use Micro wave with baking option or electric oven?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yes combination oven, in convection mode...

    ReplyDelete
  72. Well I stumbled across your recipe and the results are just cooling now! :) They look so lovely and soft so hopefully they will taste as good as they look!

    ReplyDelete
  73. i an expert with your orange cake recipe..thanks to you. Can I use the same orange cake recipe to make muffin? What is the temperature to be used then? My oven, I normally choose auto bake. Can I use that, it will take 5 min to pre heat and 35 min to bake.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Sure, just adjust the timing. it may get baked sooner... :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thanks a lot for your receipe...My Muffins were a hit..made it specially for Rakhi this time..I never cook and now something's changed :-)

  77. Hi, stumbled upon ur recipe. I am going to put the mixture into oven. Will post after 30 mins.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi, i tried this recipe yesterday... It turned out the the top layer was baked but the lower part of the muffin was unbaked.. I baked it for some more time. Then the top layer got charred out but the lower layer was still unbaked..

    Basically i faced the problem of uneven baking of different portions of the muffin..

    Any idea what could have gone wrong? I have Godrej Microwave oven and i baked in Grill Convection mode for 20 minutes.

    Any inputs will really help me....

    Thanks,
    Gayathri

    ReplyDelete
  79. You dont have any convection mode (alone)? If so try baking in convection mode itself. And also give some time for the cake to cool. If you check immediately , then it will be moist under.

  82. Which oven do u use and there is no baking powder in it? how come?

    ReplyDelete
  83. It has baking soda in it right? So that is enough in this baking recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Awesome muffins. I would add a lil less sugar than the recipe states. but the flavor was so much more enhanced by next day.

  91. Great n easy recipe! Any idea how many calories in it?

    ReplyDelete

  92. Hi
    I am regular visitor / follower of the blog. It's just awesomely explained step by step. I like it a lot and makes cooking very easy.. I wont satisfy in cooking until the item turned out exactly the way you have shown in your pictures. :-)

    As per your notes, these muffins taste good if baked a day before.
    I am wondering if do we need to keep these muffins in a the refrigerator if baked a day before. I am going try this baking for the first time, hence, wants to get this clarify... little confused. I wanted to bake this for my son's class party in next two days.

    Thanks in advance.
    Best Regards

  93. Hi, I tried your recipe, but for some reason my muffins did not rise much, even though i filled it till the level specified by you. Could you plz tell me what could be the reason for it not rising? I used a Sunflame OTG to bake it.

    1. I think either excess water/liquid or excess baking powder/soda will make your muffin look sunken.

  98. Hi Raji,

    Tried this chocolate muffin for my niece's 6th birthday(today). It came out exceptionally well. So soft and delicious. I couldn't believe that I baked this. My niece ate 3 already :)

    I am baking for the first time. Had a microwave oven (without convection mode) and it's my long time wish to get a OTG. After seeing your carrot muffin post I couldn't wait to try :)
    Bought my oven and the first thing I tried was your masala stuffed bun which is another super hit.

    You are amazing Guru!
