Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

>> Aug 4, 2011

Here are some good looking polka-dot muffins which will delight little kids, and adults too!


These muffins are moist, tender and not too sweet. As suggested I added more orange zest. I used the zest of 3 oranges as that’s all I have in my fruit basket. The chocolate chips will provide the needed ‘sweetness’.


I like the strong citrusy orange aroma… mmm…it’s wonderful!  Chocolate chips and orange make good partners in crime, I mean they pair well. :-)

These muffins were gone in a jiffy! 


The recipe is adapted from here, with minor modifications,

225g all purpose flour
90g caster sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt (omitted, as I used salted butter)
120g unsalted butter (I used salted)
120ml fresh orange juice
¾ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (I added more than that, including sprinkling on top)
2 eggs
grated zest of 1 orange (I used all 3 medium-size, left in my fruit basket)




  1. Preheat the oven to 190ÂșC and grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Add sugar and chocolate chips and mix well.
  3. Melt butter. Remove from heat, let it cool.
  4. Stir in orange juice, eggs and orange rind into cooled melted butter.
  5. Stir liquid into dry mixture and mix till just moistened.
  6. Spoon into muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes or until done
(makes 11 medium-size muffins)


I like making muffins into medium and small size suitable for small hands especially for snacking. And, of course less guilt… making me think twice before reaching for another. ~_^
