Easy Bake Choc Chip Muffins

As any regular followers of my pages know, I was firmly at the back of the queue when baking skills were getting handed out with Mary Berry firmly at the front!

Even in my family, my Nana and my Sister are amazing at cooking and baking but me and my Mum just didn’t get the genes!

Typically, my children love to get down and messy in the kitchen and as I’ve totally exhausted rice crispie cakes, I’m having to somewhat up my baking game!

It makes me smile because as a home educating Mum, people have this belief that we are all really crafty, patient and talented and whilst some can take credit for at least one of those attributes, I have none!

However, baking is a fantastic way to get the kids learning without them even realising, weighing, measuring, cutting into halves and quarters, working out the ready by times…..so many opportunities!

Its also a great way to get your little ones talking about food but in a positive and natural way, not to mention the science aspect of how and why different ingredients react with each other when they are together.

Today we got our aprons on and had a go at choc chip muffin recipe which was advertised as ‘easy’ and I have to say, I agree!

Once measured out we just whisked it into a bowl and spooned into muffin cases and the kids had a great time……so did I until it was time for the clearing up!

Heres a quick look at how it went…..

Here’s the recipe which I got from the BBC Good Food Guide….


  • 2 medium eggs
  • 125ml vegetable oil
  • 250ml semi skim milk
  • 250g golden caster sugar
  • 400g self raising flour(or same quantity plain flour and 3 tsp baking powder)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 100g chocolate chips or dried fruit such as sultanas or dried cherries (optional)


  • STEP 1
  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line 2 muffin trays with paper muffin cases. In a large bowl beat 2 medium eggs lightly with a handheld electric mixer for 1 min.
  • STEP 2
  • Add 125ml vegetable oil and 250ml semi-skimmed milk and beat until just combined then add 250g golden caster sugar and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  • STEP 3
  • Sift in 400g self-raising flour and 1 tsp salt (or 400g plain flour and 3 tsp baking powder if using) then mix until just smooth. Be careful not to over-mix the batter as this will make the muffins tough.
  • STEP 4
  • Stir in 100g chocolate chips or dried fruit if using.
  • STEP 5
  • Fill muffin cases two-thirds full and bake for 20-25 mins, until risen, firm to the touch and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. If the trays will not fit on 1 shelf, swap the shelves around after 15 mins of cooking.
  • STEP 6
  • Leave the muffins in the tin to cool for a few mins and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
