Chocolate Chip Muffins
Save a trip to the grocery store for miniature chocolate chips. Chop regular-size chips into tiny pieces. Though the appearance will be chunkier, the taste remains the same.
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan. Beat egg in a large bowl until frothy. Beat in milk and oil, about 2 minutes.
Mix sugar, flour, baking powder and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to egg mixture; mix just until moistened.
Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve muffins warm.
If your oven temperature runs high, put a small dish filled with 2 cups of water on the lowest rack in the oven. The steam that is created will prevent the edges of the muffins from over browning.
