These are so easy and require no more than a bowl and no electric mixer! It is so easy and simple and is extremely fudgy with a strong yet delicious chocolate flavor.
These are perfect all year round especially at the dessert time of the year.
Don’t they always say dessert is the most important meal of the day?
Something like that.
Two Bowls, No Mixer
This recipe uses a different mixing method. Instead of creaming butter and sugar we combine all the dry ingredients (including sugar) and in another bowl we combine the wets. Please read the recipe bellow for more information. Since we are using canola oil for this recipe, we need no electric mixer just a spatula or a spoon.
Why so much baking powder?
this recipe requires a whole TABLESPOON of baking powder which aids in the rise. These muffins rise quite a bit, yet yield a brownie like moist muffin with a cakey crumb. Because of this little baking powder trick, we can fill up the muffin tin all the way and it will yield large and tasty muffins.

Why the high heat:
these muffins are bakes at very high heat (425F) and that is also related to the baking powder amount that we use. This also insures that it cookies through yet states moist and helps the muffins rise.
Note: the batter is not extremely thick or thin. It should fall off the spatula in ribbons
Enjoy the recipe!
