When I posted my first cake a few months ago, I let you in on a little secret. I don’t like cake. I know you must be thinking I’m kinda crazy, but it just doesn’t do anything for me. If I have to eat cake I prefer it to be dense and moist, like a brownie.
Now, one thing I do like is muffins! Some people may think what’s the difference? Well, I find muffins are almost always moist, dense, and full of flavor. Unlike cupcakes which are just like cake. No cupcakes for me!
I had a craving for muffins this past weekend and I wanted to have them for breakfast Saturday morning. Can you guess what time I started to make these? Oh, 10:30p.m! Ya, what was I thinking? Do I really need muffins for breakfast? You betcha’!
I decided on an orange and chocolate flavor and I wanted to add yogurt into the batter so the muffins would stay moist. I found this recipe which incorporated all the things I wanted and they were perfect!
Have you ever tried one of those ‘Terry’s Chocolate Oranges’? If you like those than you’re going to love these muffins! It has fresh orange zest, orange juice, and lots of chocolate pieces. I also used vanilla yogurt instead of the plain yogurt it called for. Perfect, dense, moist, muffins. Just the way I like them!
