Triple Chocolate Muffins

Bakery Stye Muffins Brown Sugar Title.png

I did this bakery style muffin recipe twice, the first time I did it using caster sugar and I felt that they were a little light in colour, so afterwards I did the muffins again but this time using light brown sugar. I found that the brown sugar ones came out a nice golden brown colour whereas the muffins made with caster sugar were a lot paler.

At the end of the day it is personal choice I preferred the brown sugar ones, my mom preferred the paler ones and my dad and boyfriend couldn’t really tell the difference… so the choice is yours on whether you use caster sugar or light brown sugar.
