Chocolate Chip Praline Muffins


I’ve never had much luck baking muffins.  They either seem to come out too dense, or too flat without that trademark muffin crackle on top.  But!  At last, I seem to have found a recipe that works for me and seems to be pretty adaptable to whatever filling you fancy.  Me?  I’m never not fancying a bit (a lot) of chocolate, and to be extra fancy – instead of making just plain old chocolate chip muffins – I added some hazelnut praline for an extra crunch.  🙂

Chocolate Chip Praline Muffins (makes 12)


  • 150g Plain flour
  • 100g Self-raising flour
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 90ml vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 250ml milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Sea salt for sprinkling
  • 150g chocolate chips (as well as a little melted chocolate for drizzling)
  • 100g hazelnut praline (you can find my recipe here)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200° and line a muffin tray with paper cases.
  2. Sift together all the dry ingredients (the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, caster sugar, chocolate, and 50g of the praline).  In a separate bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients.  Pour your wet mix into your dry mix and stir.  You want a runny, lumpy mixture – so don’t over stir or worry if the mixture isn’t perfectly smooth.
  3. Separate into the muffin cases, then bake for 20 minutes until well-risen.
  4. Whilst still warm, drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with the rest of the praline and sea salt. 🙂

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
