These were GREAT! I made nine large ones. I thought the texture was similar to a poundcake.I added a touch of almond extract to the chocolate batter. We took them to a swim meet and my daughter thought they brought her luck! Roxygirl
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease 10 standard muffin cups.
- In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix thoroughly.
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
- Beat in eggs and buttermilk until well blended.
- Stir in flour mixture just until blended, being careful not to overmix.
- Divide batter between 2 bowls.
- Stir vanilla into 1 bowl of batter.
- Stir melted chocolate into remaining bowl of batter.
- Spoon the vanilla batter into one side of each prepared muffin cup, filling the cups two-thirds full.
- Spoon the chocolate batter into the other half of each muffin cup.
- Fill the 2 empty cups with water for even baking.
- Bake muffins until a toothpick inserted in center of one comes out clean, 15-17 minutes.
- Transfer the pan to a wire rack; let muffins cool for 5 minutes.
- Turn muffins onto the rack; cool completely.
- Note: To jazz these up, top half of a muffin with chocolate icing and the other half with white icing.
- Also, you can make marbled muffins by swirling the two batters together.
