Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

Muffins:

Muffin is the name given to two types of breadstuffs. Most commonly it refers to a baking powder or baking soda raised item that is often flavored with various fruits, chocolate, nuts, and bran. In the United Kingdom, "muffin" can refer to both this type of muffin, or sometimes to what the rest of the world calls an English muffin.

Origin of Muffins:

The "quick" muffin is an American development from the 19th century, made possible by the invention of baking powder. This muffin is a thick, flat bun typically about 8 cm in diameter.. In modern practice, it almost always has a "topping" baked in, such as blueberries or chocolate chips. It is usually split into two, toasted and buttered, and bears a vague resemblance to a crumpet or pikelet. It also is eaten cold with a hot drink at coffee shops and diners.

Chocolate Chips:

.Chocolate chips are small chunks of chocolate. They are often sold in a round, flat-bottomed teardrop shape. They are available in numerous sizes, from large to miniature, but are usually around 1 cm in diameter.
