Choc Chip Orange Muffins 巧克力香橙满芬


Think I'm hit by the Muffin bug again.  For breakfast I made these Choc Chip Muffins and added in some orange zest for a fruity fragrance.   There were some leftovers for afternoon tea as well and I just heated them up in the oven toaster as I like to have my muffins warm.

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
