Usually at the weekend I like to do something a little special for Saturday morning breakfast . . . sometimes it's a nice big fry up, or pancakes . . . and sometimes it's a tasty muffin like these Jaffa Cake Muffins!
Stogged full of sweet milk chocolate chips and the flavours of orange and vanilla, these are so quick and easy to make, and oh so delicious.
Moist and buttery and oh so chocolatey, they go down real nice with a warm chocolate, or a cold glass of milk . . . perfect for dunking in tea if that's your poison . . .
The orange flavour shines through with the addition of freshly zested orange peel, that you rub into the sugars with your fingertips. Just a little trick I learned from my friend Dorie. Try it with any citrus peels when you are baking. It works a charm . . . and your fingers smell lovely jubbely when you are done!
Just look at those chocolate chips! Well . . . what are you waiting for??? Get into the kitchen and get your bake on! Time's a wasting!
