All college students shudder collectively at those two words.
I have a secret weapon for them, though. And it comes out of my oven.
Try bringing some chocolate chip muffins to meetings and not getting along with your group-mates. Impossible!
I believe this trick should work for business groups, as well. Co-workers. Cohorts. So bring some to your next meeting! You won't regret it :D
Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
12 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350
In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. With a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in each of the eggs separately, scraping down the sides. Add the vanilla and mix.
Add half of the flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Add the milk and mix, then add the rest of the flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared muffin tins and bake for 21-23 minutes, until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean. Let rest in tin for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
