Great recipe! minimuffins take ten minutes but they lose their orange-ness. I am adding more zest and some concentrated flavoring or extract next time.

I love this recipe- soo yummy! Only instead of orange juice, I used 1 tablespoon natural orange flavor and added 1/2 cup flour. And of course, i loaded them with chocolate chips!! At a party, i put a little glaze on top as well. Great, thanks for sharing!!!!!

These are fantastic - more cake than muffin, gorgeous flavours and good, light texture. I creamed the orange rind with the butter and sugar, as I think this brings out the flavour a little more. I also crushed up a bar of Green and Black's Maya Gold chocolate which is slightly spiced with orange. This will be a favourite recipe, thanks!
