About This Recipe

Muffins are always a welcome treat. And they play a part in literature too! In Maud Hart Lovelace’s Betsy-Tacy series, the “house girl” Anna always made muffins for the first day of school.

Muffins are great for a snack too, and for after school treats. This recipe is full of chocolate chips. Eat these muffins warm from the oven or make a batch and freeze them. Thaw at room temperature overnight, then reheat in the microwave so the chocolate is all melty and delicious.




Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray 12 jumbo muffin cups with nonstick baking spray containing flour and set aside. Spray the top of the muffin cup pan too, because these muffins are large. If you don't have jumbo muffin tins, make 18 regular size muffins.


In a large bowl, combine the softened butter with the brown and granulated sugars. Beat well.


Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.


Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add alternately with the light cream to the butter mixture.


Stir in the chocolate chips.


Divide the mixture among the muffin cups.


Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the muffins are puffed and light golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then carefully remove to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
