Chocolate chip coffee muffins

Okay, I must confess I am becoming a tad obsessed with baking muffins.  They are so easy and virtually impossible for a baking novice like me to mess up.  This weekend I decided to experiment  a bit using my basic muffin recipe as a base (with a few minor adjustments) and another yummy creation was born.  Who needs a latte when you’ve got these?

What to use

2 cups flour

3 tsps baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup milk

1/4 cup oil

2 tbs instant coffee

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup cream liqueur ( I used Amarula Cream Liquer but I think Bailey’s will work just as well)

What to do

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in  large bowl.  Add coffee to milk and stir until completely dissolved.  Add to that mixture the liqueur and stir well. In a separate bowl, beat egg with a fork and add milk mixture and oil. Stir well.   Pour wet ingredients into a well in the flour mixture and stir until moistened.  Dust chocolate chips lightly with flour and fold into batter.  Pour into lined muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes.

Chocolate chip goodness!
