Orange Chocolate Chip Muffin

>>  Wednesday, February 5, 2014

For the final day of making Chocolate Cupcakes/Muffins, I thought one with fruits would be great. I had previously made quite some bakes with fresh Orange juice and those cakes and cookies turned out so good. This time when I had thought of the theme, I was wondering how we can combine fresh segments along with the juice and add chocolate to boot.

The combination was quite heavenly and you must try to know and enjoy how delicious this was.

The days are quite busy with us planning so much for the BM#39. With just short of two months away, there is not enough time for us to cook. As we say we need to have something that will keep us so busy and occupied that we hardly realize time flying away!
Boys have their exams on right now and today they had EVS project where they had to talk how they will keep earth clean. I was trying to refresh their memory. Peddu said he knows everything while Chinnu said he was not interested to know what I was going to say. Finally I came to know that apart from sentences he told us, Peddu added some more and get his teachers appreciation. I wonder how they always heed their teacher's word.

Anyway these orange muffins were mostly enjoyed by your's truly and Konda. Boys are yet to develop a finer sense of taste. So I have to wait for them to grow up..:)
Orange Chocolate Chip Muffin

Ingredients Needed:

Flour - 1 cup
Corn Flour - 1 tbsp
Icing Sugar - 1/2 cup
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Condensed Milk - 2 tbsp
Orange Juice - 2 - 3 tbsp
Orange Segments - 3 tbsp

Curds / Yoghurt - 1/2 cup
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Butter - 2 tsp
Milk - 1 - 2 tbsp / as required
Chocolate Chips - 2 tbsp
Vanilla Essence - ½ tsp

Muffin Liners - 6 nos

How to make the muffins:

Line the muffin moulds with the liners and keep it aside.

Sift the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Melt the butter, beat the curds. Add the butter, olive oil and curds to the dry ingredients.

Add the fruits, orange juice along with segments and combine everything well. Add milk as required to make the batter loose.

Using a spoon into the mould.

Gently mix in well. Don't beat at this stage.

Pre heat the oven at 185 degree C.

Bake at 185 degree C for 30 minute. Don't check for done ness until the first 20 mins.

Use a toothpick to see if the muffins are done. Insert the stick in the centre and if it comes out clean, it's done.

Once the full time is done, allow it to cool in the oven for 5 mins, then remove and cool outside for a while.

Since the batter tends to be on the looser side, this gets baked by 30 mins, you can check it after 20 mins. Or once your oven starts smelling heavenly!

Kids that age tend to listen to everything the teacher says. Then they grow up. :)
The muffins look good. Oranges and chocolate always work so well together.

I agree with the orange juice part. The first muffins I learnt was made using it and they used to come out real good.
