Whenever I am craving something I instantly think of chocolate chip something. That's why these epic chocolate chip steamed muffins are just perfect. If you are like me, or just want to please the kids, these are your answer. Steaming them makes it so much more fluffy and tasty and I usually eat them while still warm because the chocolate is all gooey.

One important tip when steaming muffins: always cover the muffin mould with some cling film that is heat resistant so that you ensure no steam enters the muffins. That way they stay fluffy and don't soak up excess moisture. 


  • 50 g unsalted butter in small chunks
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 80 g caster sugar
  • 225 g whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla bean paste)
  • 200 g milk or dark chocolate chips
  • 1000 g water


  1. Grease 2x 7-hole silicone muffin moulds with butter and dust with flour. Set aside.

  2. Place the butter in the mixing bowl. Combine 10 Sec. / Speed 5. Scrape down using a spatula. Add the flour, baking powder, caster sugar, whole milk, eggs and vanilla extract and combine 30 Sec. / Speed 5

  3. Add the chocolate chips, reserving a handful for sprinkling and combine 20 Sec. / Reverse Speed 2

  4. Pour the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large plain nozzle or if you are using a disposable piping bag, cut off the bottom 3cm. Pipe the mixture into the prepared muffin moulds up to 2/3 height and sprinkle with the reserved chocolate chips. 

  5. Cover each muffin mould either with cling film and place in the lower steaming tray. You will need to steam them in two rounds. 

  6. Clean the mixing bowl. Pour in the water and place the Varoma on the mixing bowl. Steam 30 Min. / Varoma / Speed 2

    What is the advantage (other than perhaps less mess) of piping rather than spooning the mixture please?
