These muffins are every chocolate lover’s dream. They’re moist, chocolatey and absolutely scrumptious. It’s best to use fresh raspberries in this recipe, but you could also use frozen ones when they’re out of season. Just make sure you drain them really well or else the muffins could be soggy and mushy. You might even have to cook them couple of minutes longer too, just to make sure they’re cooked all the way through.
- 160g all-purpose flour
- 30g cocoa powder
- 130g caster sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 80ml neutral oil
- 80ml milk
- 120g sour cream
- 120g raspberries
- 80g dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180° C. Line a regular 12-cup muffin pan with paper baking cups. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, oil, milk and sour cream.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the raspberries and 2/3 of dark chocolate chips.
Spoon batter evenly into prepared baking cups. Top with remaining raspberries and the rest of dark chocolate chips. Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of each muffin comes out clean.

Chocolate also makes me happy. Very happy. Maybe it’s the snow, or some sort of post-labor hormonal thing, I don’t know. Does it matter, anyway? A girl doesn’t need an excuse to indulge in chocolate. Ever.
I like my chocolate dark, rich, smooth and intense. There’s hardly a better feeling in the world than swirling a piece of chocolate in your mouth and letting it melt slowly on your tongue as you discover a spectacular rainbow of flavors it hides so well behind it’s dark gloomy appearance. Pure magic.
Baking with chocolate is another kind of magic. Watching a bar of chocolate transform into a gorgeous moist cake, changing its texture, color and appearance, puts me in awe every single time. Every time you bake with chocolate, you give it new life. You have the power to change it from something awesome to something truly spectacular. You can make chocolate even more exciting than it was to start with. The possibilities are endless. You can spice it up, add a shot of liquor, sprinkle it with salt, drown it in caramel, lighten it up with fruit or just go nuts. You could also add some more chocolate. You can never go wrong with that, right?
Me? I like to give it some color and and a fresh, vibrant zing. A soft and moist chocolatey muffin packed with ruby red tart raspberries, and then topped with some more chocolate…. Yes, please!
