My Chocolate Chip Cappuccino Muffins Just like MH

So I have been working at this local major hospital for 26 years and its cafeteria has the BEST chocolate chip cappuccino  muffins in the world. I have tried asking the personnel there for recipe but all they say is they get a readymade batter from some company and they just bake it there.  I have tried so many times to copy the taste of those muffins, I have posted some recipes in past too, but by God I finally succeeded, this one is the closest of all.  Now they just have the muffins without icing but I also did some variation to put the cream cheese cappuccino spread, but I love the plain version the best.  Here is the recipe. Enjoy !

  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup of oil
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs at room temp
  • 2 teaspoon of real vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of Kahlua liquor * optional
  • 1 cup of AP flour
  • 1 cup of Barley flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1  tbl spoon of instant coffee granules
  • 3/4 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 3/4 cup of half and half milk shaken and at room temp
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream
  • 6 oz of milk chocolate chips morsels
  • Some dark chocolate chips morsels to top if you desire
  • Turbinado sugar to sprinkle on top of muffins.
For cream cheese topping:

  • 8 oz of cream softened cheese
  • 2  tablespoon of sugar or 1/2 tin of condensed milk to desired sweetness
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Some shaved dark chocolate to top the spread


  • Preheat oven at 375 and place a rack in the top 1/3 of oven at least 6" from the heat source.
  • Place the  paper or silicone liner in muffin pan.
  • Grease the muffin liners with cooking spray. 
  • Set aside.
  • In a large bowl or electric mixer mix  together butter, oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, coffee granules, and Kahlua if using it  completely blended together.
  • Add sour cream and mix again.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon,  and sea salt.
  • Now alternate adding flour mixture and half and half in to the butter mixture in two batches ending with half and half.
  • Stir until barely combined and you will see streaks of flour.
  • Fold in milk chocolate chips, reserving the dark chocolate chips for topping of the muffins.
  • Scoop 1/4 cup of batter into the greased muffin liners and fill until barely 3/4 full.
  • Let the batter sit in muffin pan for 15 - 20 min before putting them in oven, this helps them get a rise in the batter.
  • Sprinkle the turbinado sugar on each muffin and top with dark chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 375 F for 18 min or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • This recipe makes about 19 muffins but bake one tin at a time.
  • Let the muffins cool  in tin for about 10 min then carefully take the liners out and set them on cooling rack.
  • Once completely cool you can frost them with following spread but this is optional step.

Method to make the spread:

  • Mix softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla (I had some left over condensed milk so I used that instead of sugar) .
  • Spread the toppings on each muffin and top with shaved chocolate.
  •  Enjoy !!
