Buttermilk Chocolate Muffins

Last week I was going to make my Buttermilk Chocolate Bread, but I really wanted something a little different. I wanted to use up some buttermilk that had expired. I knew it would be fine to bake with it and thought the chocolate bread would be a good way to use it up, but I was not really in the mood for a quick bread.

I decided to try using the same batter to make muffins. I had done this before with other quick bread recipes and it usually works well. I gave it a try with this batter and they turned out really good. In fact I think better than the bread version. I love the bread, so that says a lot. I am not sure exactly why they were better, but they were. They were more moist and just had a better overall texture.

So, if you like my Buttermilk Chocolate Bread trying making muffins with the same recipe. I baked the muffins for about 18 minutes.

  13. OHHH bookmarked these, I wonder if kefir would work to replace buttermilk. I think I am going to give it a shot

  14. I made these today and subbed prunes for the butter. Yummmm!!! Thanks for the recipe!

  15. YAY I made these today and they are soooo good. I used a mini muffin tin because everything is always better in mini can eat more without feeling to guilty about Thanks for a great recipe!!

  16. Lynn, did you bake the muffins @350 degree F too? How many standard size muffins does the recipe yield? Thanks. Planning on making these tonight.

    • @Nivedita, Yes I baked them at 350 and I think it makes 18 or so. It has been a while since I made them. But now that you reminded me about them, I am going to have to make them again soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you enjoy them

      • Lynn, thanks a bunch for the quick response! I did make these last night and they turned just as tender as I’d hoped. I baked @350 and very unevenly portioned out 18 muffins (baby was starving, crying as I did this in front of him with a spatula.. we were both desperate then, it’s pretty funny now.) I think I ended up baking the pan with 6 muffins for 18 minutes as you recommended and the other full pan tested a bit underdone so probably cooked those 23 minutes or so. I think I may add a touch of instant coffee powder next time and perhaps up the cocoa a bit too for a deeper chocolate flavor. Sweetness was just right. I tried this kingarthur recipe and those turned out pretty dry, but the flavor was good:

  17. I just made the recipe and filled one regular muffin tin and one mini muffin tin. Both came out great! I sprinkled a little powdered sugar just for contrast after they cooled. I just tried a mini and its like a mini brownie bite (not as dense but a really nice bite of chocolate that is very satisfying). Really yummy-thanks for sharing ur recipe ๐Ÿ™‚
