Author Notes

This recipe comes from "Huckleberry: Stories, Secrets, and Recipes from Our Kitchen" by Zoe Nathan. —Sarah Jampel

What You'll Need
  • 3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (165 grams) sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (25 grams) almond flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (180 milliliters) plain whole yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups (210 grams) chopped dark chocolate
  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F and position a rack toward the top. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners.
  2. Cream the butter, sugar, and salt in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium-high speed until nice and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Incorporate the eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  3. Pause mixing and add the flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, yogurt, vanilla, and chocolate. Mix cautiously, just until incorporated.
  4. Fill the muffin cups with batter all the way to the top, even a little over. Sprinkle the tops with some sugar.
  5. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until the muffins are brown and they spring back when you poke them gently. Zoe says: "Please do not overbake!"

These muffins were a failure for me and a waste of costly ingredients. I followed the recipe instructions to fill the muffin cups with batter all the way to the top and even a bit over the top even though I was skeptical because there is so much butter in the recipe. Sure enough, the batter overflowed the muffin cups.

Can you provide the flour weight in grams? :)
