Warning: this is not a healthy, sensible breakfast choice. On the other hand, this killer muffin is an irresistibly delicious little treat - perfect with a tall glass of milk or an afternoon cup of coffee or tea. Go ahead, indulge. You'll be sensible again tomorrow.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee powder , (decaf is fine)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease 10 compartments of a muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, instant coffee, and cinnamon. (If your instant coffee is in big chunky crystals, crush it into a powder before adding so that it mixes more evenly.)
  • In another bowl, beat together the milk, egg, and vegetable oil. Add to the flour mixture, and stir just until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips. Don’t overbeat – just mix everything together and leave it alone.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling the cups almost to the top. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the pan and let cool slightly before serving.
