Orange Chocolate Muffins Recipe
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, grated
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 12 cup muffin pan, or line with paper liners.
step 2: In a medium bowl, mix flour, semisweet chocolate, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
step 3: In a separate medium bowl, cream together margarine and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the orange zest, orange juice, and buttermilk. Pour into the flour mixture, and mix just until evenly moist. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
step 4: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let muffins cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
