Phew that’s a long title! Or I just said orange too much! My point is that these are delicious orange-y chocolate and double orange muffins that deserve a good title.
Hey guys, I hope everyone’s doing great. I’ve been on a muffin high myself lately, ever since creating these carrot cake muffins, I’ve just gone muffin crazy!
I used that same recipe to makes these scrumptious orange muffins. They’re so moist and fluffy and bursting with a beautiful orange flavour that’s not too over powering and not too weak. I opted for just using orange zest in the muffins because I have serious issues with adding citrus-y things to cake, I don’t like the flavour it gives once baked, but if that’s your thing then feel free to add a couple of tablespoons of orange juice straight into the batter.
I couldn’t decide what to top them with. I actually ate some without any toppings since it’s a muffin of course but whenever there’s a chance for frosting….well we frost! 😉
I made a dark chocolate glaze and an orange glaze. Both were spectacular and I loved the variation of being able to eat some of each. If you don’t like dark chocolate then semi sweet can be used too or even milk chocolate but if you make milk chocolate glaze then decrease the cream by half using only 1/4 (60mls) cup.
I made these muffins as minis mainly because I wanted to see how many the batter could make and because I wanted to used my mini muffin tray. They were too cute!
Here’s when I made them the previous night. I added a small piece of orange on top and squeezed a little right over the muffin before eating it.
These muffins have such a beautiful texture! so perfectly moist and fluffy I never use another recipe! 😊
Delicious, moist and fresh orange muffins 😍
