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 😍
Oh my Linda I love this combo of orange and dark chocolate-a winner!!!

Thank you Lynne! I do think muffins are very under appreciated especially when in comparison to cupcakes! 😊 Always good to hear from you, hope you are doing well ❤
All well thanks my friend. Have a great weekend and take care <3
You too sweetie 💙
i love long titles! otherwise if you just said dark chocolate and orange muffins, it doesn’t communicate how yummy they are as well (:
Haha thanks Heather! That’s so true! 🙂 it really needed the long title to capture the essence of the chocolate-y orange awesomeness! 😂 thank you so much for your sweet comment xx
I bet they smell pretty magical with that double orange flavor.
Hii Balvinder 🙂 ohh they did smell heavenly! And such a fresh flavour too, combined with their fluffiness, I absolutely loved them! Thanks so much for your lovely comment 💚
These look really really good! And long titles are the best kind – that way you know what you’re in for 🙂
Aw thank you! 🙂 these muffins are one of those where you make them thinking ‘hey I’m making muffins’ then you actually eat one and you’re like ‘whoa this is a really good muffin!’ 😉 and yes I’m loving long titles now 😄 thank you for your lovely comment xx
(sigh) And I am not even much of sweets eater. But these look marvelous, probably because they aren’t too sweet. Just lovely! Orange and chocolate are such a wonderful combination, aren’t they?
