Chocolate and orange are one of my favourite flavour combos and these muffins are orangey-boom! Everyone is going to be a-loving these muffins!
2 ½ cups (375g) self-raising flour, sifted
100g cold butter, chopped finely
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
1 ¼ cups (310 ml) buttermilk
¾ cup (135g) dark choc chips (plus a few extra for sprinkling)
2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
- Preheat oven to 200C / 180 C fan-forced. Line a 12 hole muffin pan with paper cases.
- Sift flour into large bowl, rub in butter. Stir in sugar, buttermilk and egg. Do not over-mix; the lumpier the mixture the better. Stir in the Choc Bits and orange rind.
- Divide mixture into pan holes and sprinkle with the extra choc chips.
- Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden. Stand muffins in pan 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
