Two Chocolate Muffins

I found these two recipes that calls for white and chocolate chips and thought they would be perfect for Father's Day brunch.  I'm giving them to you in advance to give you time to get the ingredients for next Sunday. They are so good, they are going in my recipe file and I’ll be making these again and again.

Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins 

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup yogurt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups strawberries
1/2  cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line your muffin pan with paper cups or use the Demarle Flexipan Muffin trays .

In a large mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside.

Chop up your strawberries in small bite sized pieces and set aside.

In another bowl whisk the eggs together. Add the rest of the wet ingredients (yogurt, oil and vanilla) and mix together well.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix to make a thick batter.  Fold in the berries and the chocolate chips.

Divide evenly among the 12 muffin cups.  You can use a large ice cream scoop or a small measuring cup to make them even. Fill each cup nearly full.  Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes.  Test with a toothpick.

Variation – You can use chocolate chips if you like and try it with raspberries.  Use a mini muffin tin to make little bite sized muffins for your Sunday brunch.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
24 walnut halves
1 cup flour
1 cup finely grated zucchini
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon
Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir together butter, sugar, salt, and egg until combined. Add vanilla, zucchini, and sour cream and stir until incorporated. Sift flour and cocoa powder into bowl and stir until combined. Stir in chocolate.

Spray two mini muffin pans with cooking spray. Fill each cup with 2 tablespoons batter and top with a walnut. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean (15 to 17 minutes).
Have a great Sunday.   Be happy and may God be with you and yours.
