    Perfectionist cook's Note:

    Another gem from the Women's Weekly 'Cupcakes' book, this is a dark chocolately orange muffin with almond overtones. Elegant, full of flavour and popular with both young and old. Note that as this is with Australian metric cups I have included the gram weight as well.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    muffins

    Units: US | Metric

    • 60 g dark eating chocolate, chopped coarsely
    • 1 teaspoon finely-grated orange rind
    • 2/3 cup orange juice (160ml)
    • 90 g butter, softened
    • 1 cup firmly packed soft brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2/3 cup self-raising flour (100g)
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 1/3 cup almond meal (40g, I have used flaked almonds crushed in a food processor as a substitute)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to moderately slow (170ºC) and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper liners.
    2. 2
      Combine chocolate, rind and juice in a small saucepan; stir over low heat until smooth.
    3. 3
      Beat butter, sugar and eggs in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
    4. 4
      Stir in sifted flour and cocoa powder, almond meal and warm chocolate mixture.
    5. 5
      Divide among the muffin holes smoothing the surface of the muffins.
    6. 6
      Bake for approximately 25 minutes depending on your oven. Test with a skewer to be sure.
    7. 7
      Cool and dust with icing sugar to serve.
    8. 8
      Note: These can be iced if you like, I suggest Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing.
