Organe… Ograne… Orange. ORANGE.
Orange is one of those words that my fingers just won’t type correctly. I know all the letters in the word, but my brain has trouble getting them down in the right order. And the more I look at the word… orange… the more it looks wrong, even if it’s right!
Perhaps I’m losing my mind, or perhaps I have just thought about roanges… er.. oranges for too long.
I bought a big 3kg bag of them the other day and I’ve been thinking about what to do with all of them ever since. Today, I made orange and chocolate chip muffins!
These orange and choc chip muffins are sweet, and delicious. They are also really easy to make.
You can use our homemade muffin mix and have a batch of muffins in the oven in a couple of minutes, or make them from scratch with the recipe below.
We’ve tried the ‘whole orange’ cake trick, but often find it a bit bitter, so instead we use juice, zest and then chop up the orange flesh so we are not wasting much and get a good orangey flavour.
- ¾ cup of sugar
- ¼ cup of oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups plain flour
- 2.5 tsp baking powder
- zest of one orange
- flesh of one orange chopped
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 180 Celcius and line a muffin tin with paper cases.
- In a large bowl combine the sugar and oil, add the eggs and beat well.
- Add the orange zest and flesh of the orange.
- Add the flour, baking soda, and chocolate chips.
- Add the orange juice and milk and mix well.
- Fill your muffin cases almost to the top and bake in a moderate oven for 25-30 minutes until they begin to brown on top and a skewer comes out clean.
- Drizzle an orange glaze (orange juice and icing sugar) over the top and sprinkle with more zest, or just eat them plain.
