So much has happened the past few days! On Thursday we finished packing and cleaning up our old house and loaded the truck. Friday we drove down and unloaded the truck, which was quite a task since we now live on the 3rd floor! Saturday, Sunday, and Monday we unpacked, bought new furniture, and tried to find our way around town. Also on Monday we celebrated our 1st anniversary (thanks for all your kind congratulations!). So, I apologize for my lack of blog activity but things were a bit crazy!
We LOVE our new place! I feel completely at home here already which is such a blessing! Everything is unpacked, and we feel very settled. Yesterday afternoon as I was waiting for the internet guy to come, I decided it was time to bake in the new kitchen. I'm a firm believer in chocolate for breakfast: pain au chocolat, chocolate milk, chocolate chip pancakes, etc. These chocolate chunk muffins almost taste like a chocolate chip pancake. Without the mess of syrup.
Chocolate Chunk Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup melted butter, cooled slightly
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunks
Grease regular muffin tray or line with muffin liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, stir together sour cream, milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chunks. Divide batter among baking cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until done. Makes 12-14 muffins.
