Ingredients

ORANGE MUFFINS

  • 2 cups flour (280 grams)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (100 grams)
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • grated zest of one orange
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk (112 grams)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (I used fresh juice) (112 grams)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (66 grams)

STREUSEL TOPPING

  • 1/4 cup sugar (50 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup dark mini chocolate chips (44 grams)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius). Grease muffin tins, loaf or cake pan (7 inch / 18 cm)

STREUSEL TOPPING

  • In a small bowl combine sugar, butter and flour until crumbly then stir in chips and set aside.

ORANGE MUFFINS

  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in orange rind. Make a well in the center and add egg, milk, orange juice and oil. Stir just until moistened (10-12 stirs). Pour into prepared muffin tins** and sprinkle with topping. Bake for approximately 20 minutes (check with toothpick for doneness, will be longer for cake or loaf). Enjoy!

**I made 4 jumbo muffins (very full pan) , or make 10-12 medium or 22-24 mini muffins. Time will be less for the smaller muffins. So check for doneness with a toothpick.
