Orange muffins with chocolate

Here’s another recipe for my collaboration with Fresh Up Your Life! This time orange juice was our star ingredient. Check out the video recipe on IGTV here :)

Orange muffins with chocolate

  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup blood orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 7 oz dark chocolate
  • Butter, as needed

Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together sugar and oil in a large bowl. Add egg and beat vigorously until light and well combined. Stir in milk and orange juice. In another bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Pour dry ingredients into wet and stir gently to combine.

Finely chop half of the chocolate and stir into batter. Melt the other half of the chocolate in the microwave. Cut the orange into slices and dip them in the melted chocolate, set aside to cool.

Divide the batter into buttered muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool before decorating with chocolate-dipped orange slices.
