Double Chocolate Muffins without Butter

Did you know that you can make muffins using heavy cream as an ingredient? I discovered only recently, and that by mistake, I could say.

One day, I was a bit in a hurry, just returned from a grocery store, bought some heavy cream and decided all of a sudden to make an ice cream. Forgot for the moment that for the heavy cream to whip well it needs to be cold, to stay at least one day in the fridge.

I started whipping the heavy cream and of course.. it didn’t  whip very well, didn’t get as stiff as I would have needed for the ice cream. My eggs were already beaten with the sugar so what could I do.. . as I didn’t want to use that whipped heavy cream in an ice cream recipe I finally decided that I will make some muffins and see how it works.

Added quickly some cocoa powder into the heavy cream, than combined it with the beaten eggs.. added flour and the rest of ingredients.. and guess what: one of the most delicious chocolate muffins were about to come out of the oven…the smell while baking was incredible.. could hardly wait to cool a bit so I can devour them. My daughters were thrilled.. their happiest moment of the day:)

The heavy cream muffins were absolutely amazing. They don’t need any additional butter or oil, the fat in heavy cream is enough to create one of the moist muffins ever. Combine this with chocolate and you are in Chocolate Heaven. The muffins don’t stick to the muffins paper cups at all, they remove very easy and so, by a simple mistake I actually discovered my favorite double chocolate muffin recipe. Give it a try, it is easy, quick and I am sure you will love it too.

  12. Hi
    I live in United kingdom.is bittersweet chocolate the same as dark chocolate.I can’t find bittersweet choc in shops.also does US heavy cream equate to double cream(whipping) in u.k
    Thanks

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      yes… when I say bittersweet chocolate I meant dark chocolate somewhere between 55-75% cocoa solids. Yes.. heavy cream is the equivalent to double cream. Sorry for the late answer and hope you will give this recipe a try:)

    Hi I tried the eggless chocolate coconut muffins recipe and opted out for the coconut and added chocolate instead just the way you suggested, and it turned out to be amazing! Thank you so much for giving me a option of making these without eggs 🙂 Would like to know if they should be stored in the refrigerator or not and for how many days can they be stored.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Glad you tried them out.. sorry for the late answer.. they don't really need to be refrigerated and they can be stored for several days.. or even frozen

  22. Dominique Author says:

  23. Hiam Author says:

    Hi those muffins look amazing
    Can I use whipping cream instead of heavy cream ??

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      HI, whipping  cream is a bit lighter. Heavy cream will whip better and hold it's shape longer than whipping cream. Thank you

  24. Hi, I made these muffins and they tasted absolutely delicious. The texture is little crumbly, although I made sure not to overbake them. Any suggestion? Thank you.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Uma.

      Yes, bake them  a bit less.

  25. Way too bitter. This needed more sugar in the recipe. A couple of my kids didn’t mind them, but the other two kids and their dad didn’t care for these. I had to add frosting on top just to get some of my kids to eat these!

  26. H A Author says:

    Thank you for this recipe … this turned out perfect with just the right hint of sweetness… I skipped the chocolate bits and just used cocoa and they were great… will definitely be making these again …
