Quick & Easy Double Chocolate Yogurt Muffins 简易双巧克力优格玛芬 (中英食谱教程)

I have been using this quick and easy muffin recipe all these while especially when I am super busy and do not have much time to bake. This recipe is really a life saver to me as all in all it takes only 30 minutes to churn out a batch of delicious and moist muffins. In this recipe, I only used one single baking tool - the Tovolo dough whisk, to do the job. Yay, less washing to do...especially if you are like me who do not have the luxury of having a helper at home to do all the washing. 


For those who are new to the dough whisk, it is also known as the Danish Dough Whisk or Brotpisker in Danish. It is an essential tool for all bakers as it can do chores like mixing muffin batter, mixing heavy dough prior to kneading and other batters which you don't want to beat for fear of toughening your bakes. This specialized baking tool is also easier to wash compared to a hand whisk.

80g sunflower oil  
100g whipping cream (I used whipping cream containing 38% dairy fat)  
160g greek yogurt  (I used honey greek yogurt, you can replaced with any plain yogurt)  
200g cake flour  (I used premium Blue Jacket cake flour)  
25g premium unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

全蛋2大粒 (我用一粒89克的鸡蛋)*
100克 糖 (我用有机原糖)
80g 葵花籽油 
100克奶油 (我用含有38%乳脂的奶油

200克 低筋面粉  用优质水手牌蛋糕粉
25克 优质无糖可可粉

1/4小勺 小苏打粉

3. Mix in the whipping cream before adding in yogurt and whisk till well combined.

4.  Sift in the flour mixture, use a silicon spatula, gently fold it into the mixture until no trace of flour is seen.   (With the Tovolo dough whisk, there is no need to switch to a spatula as it mixes everything well without getting any mixture stuck in between the whisk. )  


5. Add in the chocolate chips and mix well with the spatula. 

6. Spoon the batter into cupcake liner and fill up about 70% full.

7. Preheat the oven 180 ℃ top/bottom and bake for about 20~25 minutes. (My Brandt oven took 20 mins.)

Thanks for dropping by. See you again! 

 The cooking temperature as suggested in all my recipes serve as a guideline. Every oven has different thermostat, you may have to adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven. Different brand of ingredients have different composites, thus there may be a slight difference in the end result.  食谱里的烘烤温度和时间只是供参考,每一架烤炉的恒温器都不同,请自己调适。不同品牌的材料有不同的复合材料,所以最终成品有可能稍有不同。
