Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour 
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 3 tablespoons oil 
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar 
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest (optional) 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used whole milk) 
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips + additional for topping
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper liners.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, chocolate, vanilla, orange zest and egg until well combined.  Stir in flour mixture, alternating with milk, until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips until just combined.  Divide batter into muffin cups.  Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips, if desired.

Bake 13-15 minutes, or until well risen and set.  Cool 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Makes about 1 dozen small muffins, or 9 large muffins

  1. Wow, what a spread! Those muffins looksdelicious!

  2. What a fun turkey cake! And I do love chocolate and orange. I just made some gluten free chocolate chip cookies with orange in them. They were good. Have always loved seeing your t-day spread over the years. ;) And YES, cooking baking time!

  3. Your turkey cake is beautiful!! These muffins are nothing but fabulous also. Double chocolate is always a good idea!

  4. Your cake is darling, and the Thanksgiving spread looks delicious. I applaud your Mom for using shortening - I use butter-flavored Crisco in my pie crusts as well. In the past I made two butter recipe pie crusts, and while I liked the flavor I was disappointed both times in the lack of flakiness. Would love to have your family corn casserole recipe. :)

    1. Thanks, Linda! She'll be glad to hear that. :) The casserole recipe is Paula Deen's. Eric makes it every year!

  5. That looks amazing...I kind of want Thanksgiving every month! I think I'm in denial that it's over because I'm still baking pies. Yesterday I made an apple caramel pie and had it with homemade cinnamon ice cream. And I had the same thing again for breakfast this morning. Not the healthiest choice- maybe it's a good thing Thanksgiving is only once a year :P

    1. I want that, too! Why can't we have Thanksgiving every month? Who can stop us! Mmm apple caramel pie with cinnamon ice cream sounds amazing!

  6. first of all, that turkey cake is too cute! secondly, i always forget about the orange-chocolate combo. yum!
