difference between a muffin and a cupcake. American Muffin is different
from the English Muffin. An English muffin is yeast leavened bread.
Whereas the American Muffin is more cake like. Infact a muffin varies
from a cake by the way it is mixed.
is creamed, a muffin can be simply mixed. In a regular cake, the butter,
eggs, sugar is creamed before the flour is mixed in. The same cake
batter can be used for making cupcake. In a muffin, the wet ingredients
are mixed separately, the dry ingredients are mixed separately and then
muffin and a cupcake is that, cupcakes are always frosted, while muffin
can be served as such. A muffin is less sweeter, served for breakfast as
well, while a cupcake is more a dessert option.
have so many simple muffin recipes, this one is something I consciously
created to use for my daughter’s fete program at school. I was supposed
to make about 200 muffins for her. I knew it was going to be super
hard, considering it was going to be a weekday. So I had measured and
calculated so many times, on how exactly I will be arriving at 200
muffins. I even made the same recipe in Microwave and it came out
baked dishes in convection mode, I decided to try it again in convection
mode and see if the results are same. I will be using butter for the
same recipe and see how it tastes. Even with just oil, the muffin was so
delicious. Of course, I topped it with some chocolate chip, just to
make it more rich.
In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients first. It’s very important to fluff the cocoa powder along with powdered sugar, flour, baking powder nicely, before adding the wet ingredients.
All purpose Flour / Maida – 1 cup
Cocoa powder – 1/3 cup
Sugar – 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp, powdered
Salt a pinch
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Cooking Oil – 1/3 cup
Milk – 1/2 cup
Apple Cider / White Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Chocolate Chips for garnish.
How to bake Eggless Chocolate Muffin
In a bowl, mix in the flour, cocao powder, baking powder. Fluff well using a whisker. Measure out sugar and then powder it fine.
Then slowly add oil, vineger and gently blend everything together.
At this stage the batter might look lumpy, however when you add in milk, it should be fine. Start adding the milk slowing and gently fold in.
Pre heat the oven at 185 C.
Line the cups and keep the tray ready.
Depending on the batter dropping consistency, add milk if needed more.
Using a scooper, fill about 3/4 cup, top each cup with chocolate chip on top.
Bake at 185 C for 15 mins. Let it cool down before serving.
It’s always best to measure out sugar and then powder it before mixing it. This way the sugar gets mixed and baked well.
The muffin is not very sweet, can be just right.
