Easy-to-make basic chocolate chip muffins that are an all-time kids’ favourite!


  • 120 g Cake / Top Flour
  • 25 g Caster Sugar
  • 30 g Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 65 g Unsalted Butter, Softened Slightly
  • 1 Large Egg (about 60g)
  • 60 g Buttermilk* / Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 90 g Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. In a bowl, add vanilla into buttermilk and set aside.
  2. Whisk softened butter and sugar in mixing bowl, till it turns pale and light in color.
  3. Add in egg in 3 batches. Mix well with each addition.
  4. Sift flour and baking powder into mixture above and mix well.
  5. Mix in 1/2 portion of the buttermilk.
  6. Repeat with remaining flour and buttermilk.
  7. Reserve about 1/4 portion of chocolate chips. Mix in the rest of the chocolate chips into batter lightly.
  8. Spoon batter into 6 muffin cups (near to the brim of the cups; about 90% full). Add reserved chocolate chips on the top of the batter. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 20-23 mins, or till skewer comes out clean or with a few dry crumbs when inserted in the centre.
  9. Cool completely on wire rack before storing in airtight container.


For the sugar, you can use all caster sugar. I like to use brown sugar for added taste.

You can also DIY your own buttermilk by placing 3/4 tsp of vinegar into a bowl, and top up with milk to 60g. Let it curdle for about 5 mins before using.
