Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

Chocolate Blueberry Muffins
The muffins I make the most frequently, that I will never ever tire of, are my blueberry coffeecake streusel-topped muffins.  They are simply the best.  Not to mention, they're just so pretty to look at, with all those plump juicy berries peeking through the batter and that tempting crumb topping.  Everything is better with crumb topping.

But just to mix things up a bit, I created a little mash-up of those and my chocolate muffins, to create a uniquely flavored and incredibly moist muffin, not unlike my chocolate blueberry cake, which you might not even suspect contains blueberries, but rather has you wondering just how a cake could be so moist?  And with my homemade blueberry rhubarb jam baked into the centers of each muffin, they are even more wonderful.

This is an easy, unfussy recipe, with mini chocolate chips scattered over the batter for a pretty finish.  I bet you can't eat just one...

Chocolate Blueberry Muffins
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh, or frozen and thawed, blueberries
  • 2/3 cup jam (I used a homemade blueberry rhubarb jam)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 and line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners.  In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda.  Add the eggs, sour cream, oil and vanilla, and mix just until combined.  Fold in the blueberries.

Spoon a heaping tablespoon of batter into each of the paper liners.  Top with a spoonful of jam, and then divide the rest of the batter over the jam.  Sprinkle with the chocolate chips.

Bake for about 18 minutes, until the centers spring back when lightly touched.  Cool in the pan for several minutes, then serve warm.
