Total 45 minutes
Makes 12 muffins


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark, unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup sour milk or buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp butter or margarine melted
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 12-cup muffin tray.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk or sour milk, sour cream, eggs, and butter. Make a well in the flour mixture and add liquid to centre. Stir to somewhat combine ingredients, then add chocolate chips. Stir just until moistened (batter will be lumpy).

  4. Spoon batter into prepared pans, filling 3/4 full. Bake 15-20 minutes until tops are firm. Cool on wire racks for a few minutes before removing from pan and allowing to fully cool, or serve warm.


To make sour milk, combine 2 tsp vinegar and enough milk to make 2/3 cup. Allow to sit for a few minutes, during which time the milk will curdle and take on a slightly sour taste.

Muffins can also be made in a mini muffin pan for bite-size treats!
