Orange Jaffa Muffins

This is a recipe from Alison Holst's "More Marvellous Muffins" book called Golden Orange Muffins but I have changed them slightly - as, if you follow my blog you will know I do regularly!

I have made the original recipe which has half a cup each of chopped dates (or sultanas) and walnuts, and I have made just the plain orange muffin with no added fruit of nuts.

This recipe is plain with the added treat of chocolate chips on the top to give it a jaffa flavour.

They will go in the freezer for the Christmas season when I need a plate or friends call.

1 orange (or more to approx 200gr)
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
½ cup milk
100g butter, melted

1 ½ cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
⅓ cup of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 200°C.
Grease a 12 hole muffin tin.
Wash and weigh orange (s)
Cut unpeeled orange into quarters and then each quarter into half again.
Removing any seeds, and cutting off any damaged parts, add to a food processor (all the orange including skin and pith) with the sugar and process until orange is very finely chopped.
Add egg, milk and butter; process until just combined.
Sift dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Fold in orange mixture gently until just mixed (a few lumps of flour are fine).
Spoon mixture into prepared 12-hole muffin tins.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.
