Chocolate Chunk and Florida Orange Muffin Recipe

Friday, November 30, 2012

The aroma and taste of chocolate with fresh grated orange rind
combination compliments these tasty breakfast muffins!

Here's the recipe:

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Florida orange juice or whatever you use
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 Canola oil
1 tablespoon fresh orange rind
1 cup chocolate chunks
Optional: 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line muffin cups with paper liners.  Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. Whisk wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir in the chocolate and orange rind to the dry mix(and coconut if using). Pour the dry into the wet ingredients and fold together both bowls into one until just moistened.  Bake at 400 degrees until browned on top about 20 minutes, or use a toothpick in the center comes out clean to make sure the centers are done.
