Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup melted butter slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • coarse white sugar for topping (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners, or spray pan with cooking spray, and set aside.

WHISK DRY INGREDIENTS

  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg to a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.

WHISK WET INGREDIENTS

  • To another mixing bowl, add eggs, granulated, and brown sugar. Whisk to combine well.
  • Whisk in buttermilk, sour cream, melted butter, oil and vanilla extract until mixture is pale.

COMBINE WET AND DRY INGREDIENTS

  • Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet and mix together gently using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Stir until JUST combined and no flour streaks remain.

STIR IN CHOCOLATE CHIPS

  • Stir in chocolate chips. Batter will be thick and have some lumps.

BAKE

  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling the cups all the way up to the top. Sprinkle tops with a bit of coarse sugar, if using.
  • Bake at 425°F for 5 minutes, then leave the pan in the oven and reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Continue to bake another 13 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs (plus possible melted chocolate).

COOL

  • Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire cooling rack.

Notes

For the original recipe, omit the baking soda, sour cream, melted butter and coarse sugar.  Mix and bake as directed.
