Chocolate chip muffins with cake mix

I had this Pillsbury cake mix for quite a long time.  For some reason, I bought two packages of this and when I baked a cake with one of them, I felt the sugar content is very high in these cakes.  The second package was sitting in my pantry from then on.  Nowadays my elder son is in fond of chocolate muffins and very often he's been asking me to bake them.  I decided to use this cake mix to make some chocolate muffins and you know what, they turned out just yummilicious.

What I used:

Pillsbury Classic Yellow Cake mix : 1 package
Hershey's chocolate syrup : 2 tbs
Cocoa powder : 1/4 cup
All purpose flour : 4 tbs
Milk : 1 cup
Oil : 1/3 c
Eggs : 3
Baking powder : 1 tsp
Semisweet chocolate chips : 1/3 cup

How I did:
  • Preheat your conventional oven to 350 deg F and prepare the muffin pan with liners or grease with some butter.
  • In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (cake mix, cocoa powder, baking powder and flour).
  • In another mixing bowl beat eggs and add oil, milk, chocolate syrup.  Beat for a while just till blended.
  • Incorporate the dry ingredients into this wet mixture and beat for two minutes.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips and fill the mixture into the muffin pan until 2/3 level.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Serve warm.
