Chocolate Chip Muffins with Vanilla Sugar

pic from google

It was Teachers Day and I wanted the kiddo to take something homemade for his teachers. It has been a tradition of sorts. As kids we would always take a handmade card and some home made goodies for my teachers. Maa would make sure that she baked something and I have also started doing the same. I also remember taking flowers from our garden for my teachers but never anything fancy or expensive. That somehow never appealed to me...the joy of making a card at home is something else and I encourage the little one to follow the same. So here is the recipe for very easy Chocolate Chip Muffins with Vanilla Sugar. The recipe has been broadly adapted from here


Flour - 1 and 1/2 cup

Granulated sugar - 1/2 cup

Baking powder - 2 tsp

Milk - 1 cup - room temperature

Butter - 1/2 cup melted

Egg - 1 medium

White /Dark chocolate chips - 1 cup

Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

Vanilla sugar - 2 tbsp - or you can use brown sugar instead


In a bowl combine the flour ,sugar ,baking powder and the chocolate chips. Mix well.

In another bowl , combine the milk ,melted butter, vanilla essence and the egg. Blend well into a smooth mixture.

Add the dry ingredients in two parts - mixing well after each addition. 

Grease and line a muffin /cupcake tin.

Fill the batter 3/4 th into each cup. Sprinkle some vanilla sugar /brown sugar on top.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 25- 30 mins or till a tooth pick comes out clean. little boy was very happy to take these for his teachers and they loved it too!
