I like making muffins. They are simple to put together and you don’t have to frost them. They usually aren’t as sweet as cupcakes. They make the perfect snack. And these chocolate coffee muffins are no exception.

The batter includes a shot of ground coffee, some coffee extract, some cocoa, and some chocolate chips. I really expected these to have a strong chocolate taste. But they didn’t. And to me that’s a good thing because I really don’t like coffee. I actually found these to be a little bland. But I still liked them.

The recipe is from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking with Dorie: sweet, salty, and simple. (page 68)
