What is the difference between a chocolate muffin and a chocolate cupcake?

The ingredients are pretty much the same, but the quantities differ and most of all the chocolate cupcakes will have an icing on the top whereas the muffins will not have icing. Also, cupcakes will be more moist and soft than a muffin. A muffin would have a moist interior but a crunchy top.

Double chocolate chip muffins without buttermilk

Usually, most of my chocolate cake recipes will have buttermilk in it, because that’s the secret ingredient that I use to make cakes extra soft but not this one because we don’t want the muffins to be too soft but I am using a bit of sour cream or you can use plain yogurt as well, to get a bit of softness and gooiness inside the muffin.

How much batter to fill into the muffin liners

Usually, for cupcakes I would always say, fill 3/4 of the liner, but for muffins, you can fill a full liner because the best characteristic of a good muffin is the over spilled dome top which usually gets a crust when baked.
