It’s a shame most Americans demand food out of season. They have no
idea what jewels of culinary delight they are missing! We have
discovered many delicious foods when we have been forced to think
outside our cultural food box. Because our chickens are no longer
laying, we are rationing eggs, which is typical for us in January. I created this recipe a few years ago, and it quickly became a family favorite. I even make these muffins when we have plenty of eggs!
Antiquity Oaks Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 3 cups unbleached flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 T. baking powder
- 1 stick butter
- 1 1/2 cups goat milk
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
together the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Using unbleached flour is
healthier (no bleaching residue) and gives muffins a more golden glow
after baking. Cut in a stick of butter, using a pastry blender, which is
that thingie in the upper left corner of the photo. Add the milk and
stir. For those of you without a goat, you can use whole cow milk. The
dough will look a little looser than cookie dough, but definitely won’t
look like your typical muffin batter.
overmix it, because you still need to add the chocolate chips, which
will, of course, mean that you have to stir a little more to get the
chips properly distributed. If you are lacking one or more of the
different types of chocolate chips, don’t worry. Just make sure the
total amount of chips equals 1 1/2 cups. You probably noticed there is
not a lot of sugar in this recipe, so you need the chocolate chips for
the batter into your muffin pan. It will be heaping, which is totally
unlike most muffin recipes where you fill the cups 1/2 to 2/3 full. With
so much flour and no egg, these muffins are heavy duty, so don’t expect
them to melt and spread out.
Bake at 400 degrees F for
20 minutes. These muffins are absolutely the most delicious thing
created since the invention of the oven! Okay, that’s just my humble
you’re tromping through the snow or lounging on the beaches down under, Enjoy!
