My best friend has asked me for a nice muffin recipe. She likes her muffins soft and fluffy and her DH likes chocolate. S0 here it is for you, Sharon, Chocolate chip muffins.

70 gm (2½ oz) caster sugar
30 gm (1 oz) dark brown sugar
2 eggs at room temperature
215 gm (7½ oz) plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
125 ml (4 floz) milk
plain chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Sift flour and baking powder twice.
2. Cream butter until soft. Add both sugars and heat until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
3. Fold flour into butter mixture. Alternatively with the milk. Spoon mixture into muffin cups and sprinkle chocolate chips on top, then cover with a spoonful of the batter.
