Cook Time- 15 – 20 minutes

Makes – 12



  • 280g plain flour
  • 75g cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 250g granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300ml buttermilk
  • 55g unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee , optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 170g Homecook Dark 72% Cocoa, chopped into chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with baking cases.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium bowl in the microwave, and leave to cool.
  3. In a large bowl sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add sugar and mix. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the buttermilk, oil, melted butter, coffee granules and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined. Do not over mix. The batter should be thick and lumpy. Add chocolate chunks and stir.
  5. Divide the mixture between the muffin cups and fill them almost all the way to the top. Bake for 3 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 180C. Continue to bake for an additional 12-17 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan.
