#MuffinMonday : Chocolate Chip Cake Batter Muffins

Hello friends!

So you may remember my little obsession with muffins?

Or you are totes new to the blog in which case you have no idea what I’m talking about. Either way, after receiving such positive reviews about my muffins from my Entrepreneurship class (muffin food truck project ) I decided it’s about time I started trying out new recipes. Therefore I am jumping on the #muffinmonday bandwagon and will be featuring them weekly here on the blog.

So who’s up for some cake batter muffins?!

Because everything is better with sprinkles.

And chocolate chips.

I did some Googling to figure out what exactly is in cake mix, and I thought that since it had sugar and leavening agents already mixed in, I should decrease the amounts in my base recipe. Worked wonderfully in terms of the sugar, these were sweet without immediately inducing cavities.

But I sort of wish I had just left the baking powder alone though since they came out a smidge flatter than I would’ve liked. Or I could’ve just tested out Sally’s tip about lowering the oven temp halfway through. OR I could stop being so indecisive all the time and just come up with more than one base recipe like I did with the eggnog muffins.
