Chocolate Orange Spice Muffins–Printable Version

Chocolate Orange Spice Muffins


 1 (6-muffin size) chocolate muffin mix

1 medium orange

1/4 cup milk

1 egg

4 oz. applesauce (or 2 tablespoons oil)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

Nonstick cooking spray


Begin by emptying the contents of a cheap chocolate muffin mix into a bowl with a pouring spout.

Over the powdered mix, grate the peel of one orange. (You do not have to use all the peel if you do not wish to.) Then squeeze about 2 tablespoons’ worth of the orange juice over the mix.

Add milk and break an egg into the mix. Stir in cinnamon and vanilla extract. Add applesauce (or substitute cooking oil if desired).

Stir the mixture until the consistency is even. Note that it will probably seem runnier than expected; don’t worry. Just make sure there are no pockets of dry powder in the mixture and you’ll be fine.

Coat the inside of six muffin tin cups with nonstick cooking spray. If using paper cupcake liners, go ahead and give each one a little spritz of cooking spray inside as well. Pour muffin batter into each cup. Bake approximately 12 minutes, or until muffins have risen sufficiently and spring up again when center is pressed on a little.

Finished muffins should release easily from the inverted muffin tin and should cool at least 10 minutes before being served. Garnish with powdered sugar or fresh fruit if desired.
