Sunday Brunch: Orange & Chocolate Muffins

IMG_5696

It’s Sunday! It’s a day you should live like me: A CAT! I sleep. I play. And I eat. That’s it! No fuss. No huff. Just pleasure. So why don’t you sleep until at least 10 am, and do maybe a quick morning stretch if you dare. Then don’t be silly to queue for brunch. Skip the line and make delicious brunch at home in your pyjamas. Then chase birds or balls for the rest of the day. Or have some nap in your cardboard box.

My Orange & Chocolate Muffins are a super simple and sweet way to start your Sunday. Have them with a glass of milk or orange juice in bed, and you’ll be in brunch heaven!

Happy Sunday!

ORANGE & CHOCOLATE MUFFINS
Makes 12 muffins

INGREDIENTS
125g unsalted butter
85g caster sugar
2 eggs
120ml whole milk
120ml orange juice
Grated zest of 1 orange
300g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
100g dark chocolate, chopped
½ orange, cut into wedges and sliced

INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Preheat the oven to 180℃/Gas 4.* Line a muffin tin with muffin cases.
    2. Beat the butter with the sugar in a large mixing bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, then the milk, orange juice and orange zest.
    3. Combine the the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl, then sift into the  wet mixture and mix roughly with a rubber spatula. Stir in the chopped chocolates.
    4. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases until ⅔ full and arrange the sliced orange on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until light golden. A skewer poked in the centre should come out clean. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the tins and cool completely on a wire rack.

*Every oven is unique. Know your oven and adjust the temperature and baking time.
