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 the 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, the 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.
