Orange Chocolate Muffins

No picture of this recipe because that’s just how quick these muffins are gone. I will make a point next time to snap a picture and come back and edit this entry. These are so so good, I’m sure I’ll be making them again soon!

Chocolate Orange Muffins
recipe from Pat in Kansas

  • Zest of 2 medium oranges
  • Juice of 2 medium oranges
  • 3 oz. chocolate, chopped finely (I used a semi-sweet Ghirardelli bar)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 12 muffin tins. Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy and light yellow. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Mix well. Add the buttermilk, juice, and baking soda and powder. Batter will be very liquidy. Sprinkle flour and then chocolate over the batter. Fold in gently. Bake 20 -25 minutes until golden and springy to touch.
