Nigella’s Chocolate Chip Muffins in the Thermomix

Nigella's Choc Chip Muffins Thermomix

Makes 12

These are muffins in minutes! It actually takes me longer to walk to the shop than to make these little babies! Perfect results every time! If you haven’t got a Thermomix, you can find the original recipe here.


175g raw sugar

250g plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

2 tablespoons good quality cocoa powder

150g dark chocolate chips, plus a few extra for sprinkling

250g milk

90g vegetable oil

1 egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

How to

1. Preheat oven to 180C / 160C fan-forced.

2. Mill the sugar for 3 seconds  on speed 9. Set aside.

3. Pour all the liquid ingredients into the TM bowl. Mix for 10 seconds on speed 5.

4. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar, and the chocolate chips into TM bowl. Mix for 5 seconds  on speed 4, using the spatula to mix. Don’t over mix! – remember a lumpy mixture makes the best muffins!

5. Use an ice cream scoop to spoon the mixture  into the prepared muffin cases. Sprinkle with some extra chocolate chips on top and then bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark, risen and springy

    Just confirming that this recipe calls for 250g milk? Thanks

    • Sammie

      Yes, it really does, Brooke! 250ml is all you need! I hope you enjoy the muffins as much as we do!

  • Helen Wyatt

    Can I double check again please.. Brooke asked if it was 250 GRAMS milk, and you have said it’s 250 MILLILETRES…. does 250ml weigh 250g? 🙂 I want to make these, which is why I’m showing an interest! 😉

    • Sammie

      Hi Helen! You should definitely give these a whirl, they’re chocalicious! If you’re using a Thermomix, weigh in 250g of milk and if you’re cooking conventionally, it’s 250ml which is 1 cup. It’s the same measure! Let me know what you think!

  • Beatriz

    Hi Sammie!
    These are the best chocolate muffins I have made with my TM….. Usually they turn out quite hard and crusty but yours were beautiful, soft and tasty.
    I love you blog too! You are a hell of a strong woman! X

    • Sammie

      Beatriz, you are too kind! These choc muffins are our favourites too! I have to say I’ve been going through a bit of a muffin phase recently so there will be more muffin recipes coming your way! Watch this space!

  • Pamela

    I made these muffins and they were divine. Thank you so so much! Making more today 🙂

    • Sammie

      Yay! They are pretty moreish, aren’t they Pamela? I’m pleased you love them as much as we do!

  • Chantal

    After having these beautiful choc muffins, i decided to try them with banana & choc chips…. 3 small bananas mashed at the start with the liquid and a few chips at the end on the top…. YUM!

    • Sammie

      Sounds delish, Chantal! I must try, thanks for sharing!

  • Rachel

    Gorgeous muffins thank you! Baked them for the other mums at school and they were a massive hit 😉

    • Yay! Pleased you and the other mums said they were yum! They are pretty irresistible if I say so myself. High five to you for sharing the muffin lovin’.
