    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    Very soft decadent, yet low-fat cupcakes. These do not contain egg and can easily be made vegan. Un-iced, they are still extremely good cake-like muffins. NOTE: these cupcakes had a VERY mild citrus flavour. I have since added orange zest to the recipe for a more prevalent citrusy flavour.

      A nice low fat muffin (type cupcake). I used all fresh squeezed orange juice (instead of water) and just added a tbsp. or so of water because the batter was really thick. I have old small muffin tins and this made just barely 12 muffins. We enjoyed these and I have frozen half of them for luncbox treats. Thanks for posting!

      Great! I'll sure make them again. Had to add some extra water though.

      These were great! Chocolate-tasting, chewy and yet soft. I used the juice of one large orange and also the zest of it. So pleased I have found this. Thanks for sharing.
