Chocolate sour cream muffins

I just found my love with sour cream, it makes the cakes moist and soft. 
Muffins are easy to make so when my children wants a cake, I'll whip up some muffins for them. 
These muffins are rich in chocolate flavour. Adding ganache makes them even more scrummy.
Great for cold nights like today with a cup of tea in front of the telly. 


120g plain flour
15g good quality cocoa powder
1/2. Tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4. Tsp salt
30g caster sugar
50g chocolate chips
75ml sour cream
45ml whipping cream
1 egg
55g melted butter
50g brown sugar

Preheat oven 190c
Mix (A) your dry ingredients in a bowl
Mix (B) your wet ingredients in another bowl
Make a well in bowl A and pour B in the middle
Using a balloon whisk, mix gently 8-10 times to combine your ingredients. Your batter should look lumpy.
Don't worry if there are still flour visible that will come together when it bakes in the oven.
Bake for 25-30mins. I would check it at around 20mins.
Mine took 24mins as I used cupcake cases instead of muffin cases. So there's a smaller cake to bake.


  1. Mandy,
    Thank you for ya recipe! Does this yield 6 muffins or more?

    1. I got 6 muffins out of this recipe as I only have a small oven and only can fit a 6 hole muffin tin so all my recipes are adjusted to fit one bake. You can always double the amount if you have a 12 hole muffin tin.

  2. Mandy, do i need to whip the whipping cream?

    1. Hu Yvonne, there's no need to whip the cream. You can use milk to substitute.

  3. Can substitute sour cream with yoghurt?

  4. Yes you may. The sour cream makes it fluffier so yogurt can be used as a substitute.
