Chocolate Orange Muffins

Moist, sweet, chocolatey and fragrant.


Yield: [13 muffins]

Prep time: [20 mins]

Total time: [80 mins]


Ingredients:

Plain flour | 240 g

Unsweetened cocoa powder | 40 g

Baking soda | 1 tsp

Baking powder | ½ tsp

Salt | ½ tsp

Granulated white sugar | 235 g

Milk | 100 ml

Fresh oranges | 1 whole orange - juiced

Honey | 1 tbsp.

Eggs | 2 eggs

Butter | 120 g - melted

Orange zest | 1 whole orange zest

Almonds/pecans | 50 g chopped - optional

Chocolate chips | 50 g - optional



Directions:

Preheat the oven at 180°c/gas mark 4. In a large bowl, combine together all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar). Add the milk, honey, orange juice, eggs, melted butter and orange zest and mix well, try not to overmix. (If you are using an electric blender set speed to low).


Add the chopped almonds or pecans and chocolate chips into the batter and mix well. Fill a muffin tray with muffin cases and spoon in the batter. Fill it up about half way to avoid overflow when rising inside the oven. Bake the muffins for about 15 - 20 minutes. To check if the insides of the muffins are ready, insert a tooth pick into the centre of each muffin, if the toothpick comes out clean then the muffins are ready.


Cool the chocolate orange muffins down on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before serving.


Enjoy!
