Chocolate Muffin (Pancake Mix Version)

This is the first muffin I baked this year in September! I have been cutting down baking to reduce sugar intake since last year. As a result, the pack of semi-sweet chocolate chips I bought from Costco was left untouched for months. Finally, I decided to bake something easy for afternoon tea. 2 kgs of chocolate chips, still a long way to go!

It was my first time to use the pancake mix in baking muffin. I am glad that they turned out moist and fluffy. My boys asked me to bake again the next day, with more chocolate chips topping. For information, pancake is called hotto ke-ki (hot cake) in Japan. After living here for more than six years, I still can't get myself used to the Jap-lish.
Makes 10 to 12 pieces

300 g Pancake mix
80 g Granulated sugar
120 g melted butte
200 g Semi-sweet chocolate chips (extra for topping)
120 ml Milk + 1 tsp vinegar
2 tbsp Water or black coffee
2 Large eggs

  1. Combine the chocolate chips and butter in a heat proof bowl. Melt the chocolate with either double boil method or microwave it. Set aside.
  2. In a separated bowl, bring together the milk, water/coffee, sugar and eggs. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Add in the pancake mix and fold to mix.
  4. Add in the chocolate mixture. Fold to mix with a spatula.
  5. Spoon the batter into muffin cups, 80% full, add chocolate chips topping if desired.
  6. Bake in the preheat oven at 180°C for 25 mins.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool on rack.
