Double Chocolate Muffins

Happy birthday to my husband!

Double Chocolate Muffins

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon oil (canola/safflower/vegetable)
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  In a measuring cup, combine remaining ingredients, whisking together to combine.  Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring just until mixed (don't overmix!).  Pour into paper-lined muffin cups, sprinkle liberally with raw sugar, and bake 20 minutes, until tops are dry and crackly, and a tester inserted in the center comes out with only melted chocolate chips, not gooey batter.  Cool for a few minutes in the pan, and then remove muffins and cool on a rack.  Put in a birthday candle, and sing happy birthday to someone you love. 

Yield: 1 dozen standard-size muffins, or 6 jumbo muffins (increase baking time slightly).
