Mmm...*drools* That looks so delectable. =) I'm craving your muffins!! But what's the difference between a muffin and a cupcake? I thought that cupcakes=sweet non-vegetable muffins, so wouldn't a chocolate muffin = a cupcake? Just wondering.^-^

johanna

interesting! i wasn't actually aware of that distinction! to me, a muffin is anything that rises higher than the muffin case, whereas a cupcake neatly stays in its cup and doesn't venture beyond. I just googled it and stumbled across a definition on recipezaar, which says that the difference is in the dough - muffin dough is very sensitive to overmixing, whereas cupcake batter isn't. Also, they say muffins are not usually frosted (whereas cupcakes always are) - so is mine a cupcake or a muffin? still no answer. i call it a muffin, because i am not really familiar with the concept of cupcakes (we don't have them in austria and in the UK, there are fairy cakes... but maybe i've just created my first without even knowing!

Niki

oooooooooooooh! Yummy!
Muffins have better crust ratios than cupcakes too - there was a whole episode about muffin tops on Seinfeld once.

Niki

Ps - I'd probably class what you made as a cupcake rather than a muffin (which I think as as being much plainer - just dough), but it makes classification more difficult when they're in muffin papers.
I don't know - I think it's a hybrid!

I'm glad you've dedicated some time to work through the features of your camera (digital?) and learn how to shoot your beautiful culinary creations. More fun for all of us!

Deb

Phyllis

I love the recipe for Triple Chocolate Muffins!! Coming from New York,I use different measurements ( cups, ounces, etc), I have tried to convert your recipe, but it does not look right to me. Could you send me a reconverted recipe so I can use and enjoy it???
Thanks!!

Frodo

these are absolutely wonderful. i found your website utterly by accident (well a google accident) and made these amazing muffins/cupcakes (the argument remains unresolved). they truly are melt in the mouth decadence.

Lynsey

Hmm... I did something wrong here as I had no ganache centre - it seems to just be sucked into the muffin dough. Any ideas where I went wrong? They're still pretty good anyway, but just not quite as planned. All suggestions of where I may have gone wrong gratefully received!

noelle

Not a good recipe! The baking time is to short. The muffin is more like a hardened pudding. Nothing like a muffin.

johanna

Hi Noelle, I am sorry to hear you had trouble with the recipe, all I can say is that ovens do vary considerably (I know this as I have moved several times since I started this blog...) - also, I use a fan oven, if you don't have a fan, you should go with about 200C.
Also, my cupcake recipes DELIBERATELY go easy on the baking powder (I just can't stand the taste) which so many others use as a raising agent and since I prefer to use real chocolate rather than cocoa powder, the dough will by nature be more dense.
kind regards
johanna
