Hello everyone ☺ I hope you are enjoying the winters like me 😀 So much to gorge on – Gajar ka halwa, aate ka halwa, panjeeri, gud ka laddoo, revdi …. Oh the list is endless if you stay in a Punjabi family ☺
This Orange and Dark chocolate muffins recipe is a perfect breakfast for winters. Seasonal juicy oranges and dark chocolate muffins , such a lovely combo, just perfect!!
These are regular muffins with dark chocolate chunks(not chocolate chips, I prefer chunks :D) and a citrusy zing. The citrus twist comes from the orange zest and juice.
For those of you who are not sure what zest is, it is prepared by scraping the outer colorful skin of the orange. The white portion under the skin is the pith which is bitter and has to be avoided. Zest is perfect to flavor a cake or muffin.
Now for the ingredients, these are all simple things always stocked up in your pantry. Convenient cooking ☺. The recipe yields 20 regular muffins.
Bake for 30-35 minutes.
The smell of these pretty muffins baking in the house is so inviting. I baked these for a weekend breakfast and they turned out bang on. So soft and delicious. The orange complimented the dark chocolate so well!! Hot coffee and muffins for breakfast anyone 😉
