Preparation Time: 20-30 minutes
Baking time: 18-22 minutes (Microwave takes 2-3 minutes)
Servings: 15 to 18 depending on size of mould


Dry ingredients
  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

  • Wet ingredients
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup Coffee in water
  • 1/2 cup Neutral cooking oil (e.g canola oil, corn oil)

  • Other ingredients
    1 cup Chocolate chips (dark, milk or white or a mix)
    1/2 cup dry fruits of your choice (I have used raisins, chopped almonds and cashews)


  • To make buttermilk at home- Take 1/2 cup milk (whole or skimmed) and add 1/2 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. Leave aside for 10-15 minutes.

  • To make coffee water- Take slightly warm water (1/4 cup) and add instant coffee powder. Mix well and keep aside.

  • Sieve the flours in to a deep vessel. Add all the dry ingredients (except sugar and salt) and sieve them. Mix together. Break lumps of brown sugar with fingers and add.
  • If using sweetened cocoa powder, you may reduce the amount of sugar.

    Dry ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celcius (not needed if using a microwave). Grease the muffin tray or line with paper cups

  • Add the chocolate chips, nuts and dry-fruits. You can omit the nuts and fruits if you don't want it.

  • In another bowl, whisk the eggs and vanilla together. Use a fork or hand whisk. Over beating can spoil the recipe. Avoid the electric beaters.

  • Wet ingredients

  • Now add the oil.

  • Add the buttermilk and coffee water and mix together.

  • Pour the wet ingredients in the dry and fold together. Take care not to over beat the mixture.

  • Consistency is thicker than cake batter

  • Pour in to the moulds and bake on 190 degrees Celcius for 18 to 22 minutes. If using a microwave, micro on 80% power for 2 minutes and half a minute more if necessary.

  • Fill little more than half

    Check by inserting a toothpick in the center. It should come out clean.

    Eat as is or decorate as per your choice

  • Leave on cooling rack before you dig your teeth into these sinful little muffins.
