Chocolate Marble Muffins

These muffins are really good. They almost taste like a cupcake- if you put some frosting on it nobody would ever know it was a muffin (although really- muffins and cake are one in the same anyways!) Mine were a little over done in 20 minutes- I would probably do 17-18 minutes next time. Very tasty and fun to make!

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup milk
6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled a bit
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cocoa powder


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Grease or line a muffin tin or line it with muffin cups.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a large bowl.
3. Beat together the eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and mix the wet ingredients in until just moistened.
4. Divide the batter into two bowls. Add the cocoa powder into one of the bowls and mix it together.
5. Alternate adding in the chocolate and vanilla batter into the muffin cups. Add a teaspoon of chocolate or vanilla, then a teaspoon of vanilla or chocolate, then another teaspoon of chocolate or vanilla. When they bake, they will melt into each other and “marbleize”.
6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until just barely golden brown on top. Allow to cool completely before removing. Makes about 12 muffins.
