To start 2021 I made for you a simple, quick but very delicious recipe: kefir and butter chocolate chips muffins. How come these muffins are different from so many recipes we can already find online? Well personally, I find that kefir makes them particularly soft while the butter whipped with sugar adds the rich texture and flavor, similar to that of a cake. The chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips) obviously make everything super delicious.
For this recipe I used salted butter made by Lurpak but you can also use the unsalted one.
Instructions Kefir and butter chocolate chips muffins
In a bowl, sift flour with baking soda, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
In another bowl, whip sugar with soft butter until it becomes lighta nd frothy. It will take about 3 minutes.
Continuing to whip, gradually add eggs and finally vanilla extract.
Now gradually add the flour mix alternating it with kefir (or curdled milk). Whip while at minimum speed, until all the ingredients are well combined and the batter is without traces of flour.
At this point, add the chocolate chips and gently incorporate them with a spoon with movements from the bottom to the top.
Place the paper cups in the muffin pan and fill them up to 3/4 in hight with the prepared mixture. Preheat your static oven to 180 ° C. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Check the baking with the toothpick until inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
Remove from the oven, wait a few minutes and remove from the pan. Let them cool down completely before serving.
