Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

I was thinking what to do with all the oranges from my tree.  You will be seeing a lot of recipes with oranges this summer, since I have a lot of oranges to use.  

These chocolate chip orange muffins are just great.  They are very moist and spongy.  Needless to say, I impressed myself again. 


2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
grated zest of 3 Oranges
200g  dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cups squeezed orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pan spray or oil

2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cups squeezed orange juice

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Beat the eggs first, then combine and mix all the ingredients together, except chocolate chip. When the dough in uniform add chocolate chips.  Do not over-mix.

Grease the muffin pan with Pan or oil.  Divide the dough evenly to fill the pan.  

Bake the muffins at 400F for about 20 minutes.  Test with the toothpick if they are done.  Then poke some holes in each muffin and add glaze over them.
