Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chip Muffins. Looks perfect taste perfect. Moist and chocolatey. And I really like muffins with a high and even dome.

Many have asked me about the differences between a muffin and a cupcake. I have posted once on this and Im going to repeat.

A cupcake is usually sweet but a muffin can be sweet or savory. A cupcake has a flat top that is good for frosting or decorating using fondant but a muffin usually has an overflowing and uneven dome top. A cupcake is finer and less dense in texture, more spongy but a muffin more dense and crumpy (you can make it moist though). The batter of a cupcake is smooth and thin which is the result of using the mixer and the creaming method applied. The muffin batter is thick and lumpy as its purely the combining of the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients without the use of mixer. I really love making muffins for that ;)
