How To Get Perfect Jumbo Muffins
To get perfect high-domed muffins like you would in a bakery at home, there is a specific process to get the best results.
While you can simply fill muffin cups halfway and pop in the oven until done, to get the super puffy, airy, and light jumbo muffins you love from your favorite bakery, you’ll want to follow these important tips for how to get high domed muffins at home:
-Bake Jumbo Muffins 5-10 minutes more than you would regular muffins.
-Use a spatula or a spoon to mix muffins, not a mixer.
-Refrigerate dough, covered, for at least one hour after mixing, up to overnight.
-Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
-Bake muffins for about 6-8 minutes (until they have risen just past the muffin cup top) at 425 degrees.
-Reduce heat to 350 for the second half of baking.
-Always let muffins cool on a rack instead of in the pan, as leaving muffins in the pan will make the bottoms soggy as the steam we used to build a high domed muffin gets trapped and makes the texture soggy!
How To Freeze Muffins
These muffins are great for meal prep since they can be frozen easily if you have too many, or if you’d like to have them portioned out individually.
-Tightly wrap each muffin in plastic wrap.
-Add plastic wrapped muffins to a large freezer sized ziploc bag and freeze for up to 6 months.
-When ready to eat, let muffin thaw naturally overnight in the refrigerator or in a cool, dry place.
-Pop in the oven or microwave to warm, and enjoy!

- 9 1/2 oz all purpose flour about 2 cups
- 3 1/2 oz cocoa powder about 3/4 cup
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 extra large eggs
- 8 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- 1 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Toss the chocolate chunks into the dry ingredients to coat the chocolate chunks in flour (which will help them not sink to the bottom of the mix when baking!)
- Make a well in the middle and add in eggs and vanilla, whisking vigorously.
- Using a large spoon, mix rest of ingredients in to muffins until large clumps are gone and batter is consistently mixed - but do not overwork muffin batter.
- Cover batter and refrigerate for one hour to overnight.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Fill muffin cups to 3/4 full.
- Bake at 425 for 6-10 minutes, until muffins have puffed slightly above muffin liner.
- Reduce heat to 350 (DONT open oven when you do this) and bake until sides of muffins are slightly crunchy and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (after about 25-30 minutes total baking time.)
