Chocolate chip muffins

                                                    Its been a while since I have been baking this muffin and has become my signature muffins since then. Infact these were the first muffins I ever baked and I succeeded in the first attempt itself . I adapted this recipe from Apy Cooking .When I was baking this for the first time, my baker buddy  Lakshmi guided me on how to place the liners and stuff ,so it was of great help…My son proudly takes this in his tiffin and shares it with his friends . And since Christmas is the season , baked  goodies is the best thing to post . It reminds me only of CAKES AND JUST CAKES . Would want to learn cake decoration soon. My kids are already set for the Christmas season , their favorite part is the Christmas gifts which Santa,my husband Sanjay showers on them every year.

My notes:
  • I baked these  muffins  in my microwave convection oven.
  • It has automatic preheating mode.
  • Samsung microwave convection is the best microwave and I have been using it since many years.
  • Initially I had an OTG which I had disposed after Microwave was introduced and due to spacing in the kitchen.
  • Just last month  again I bought an Bajaj OTG which works too good.
  • Option was between Morphy Richards and Bajaj , but finally went for Bajaj  after I was impressed by Kmaams review .
