Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins


So...as I was perusing my cookbook for Tuesdays with Dorie, I came upon a recipe for Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins on page 19, complete with a giant picture on the opposite page. They just looked and sounded too good to resist. I checked the completed recipes list of TWD, thinking surely someone had picked this recipe to bake in the past...but no, it hasn't come up on the list yet. Well, I just had to make them, and couldn't pass up blogging about them!

Now, can someone please explain to me how a recipe that says it yields 12 muffins, actually makes 22 when I make it?? I don't understand it. Do I have a misconception of what "regular" muffin tins are? Surely not. I did not pull out my mini muffin pans, I promise! :) It is possible that I didn't fill my muffin cups up enough, but I really think if I'd used all the batter for just 12 muffins, I would have been facing a huge mess... Who knows. Anyway, I wound up with a lot more than it was supposed to make, but that's not entirely a bad thing!

Oh man...the smell while these were baking...torturous! The wait while cooling enough to eat? Even more so. The taste test? Yummy!! Nice and chocolate-y, but not overly sweet. Definitely a muffin, as opposed to a cupcake. And having extras? Definitely not a bad thing!!
Update: D tried one, but didn't like it. Even though I told him it was a muffin, he was still expecting something sweeter, more of a cupcake. Guess I'll have to try the chocolate-chocolate chunk cupcakes next! ;)

These are one my fav muffins from the book. You expect the muffins to be sweet but in fact they are a little under-sweetened. I love them with coffee.
