How to Make Upside-Down Orange Muffins with Chocolate


Preheat your oven to 350F degrees or 180C degrees. Grease muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine together the dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking powder.


In a large mixing bowl beat in the egg whites alongside with half of the sugar until fluffy and combined. In another bowl, beat in the butter and the remaining sugar. Add half of the dry ingredients and mix alongside sour cream, milk, vanilla extract, water, orange juice, and zest. Fold in half of the meringue, taking care not to over mix it. Fold in the other half and mix with the help of a spatula and pour the batter in a sprayed muffin tin, filling ¾ of the way full. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown and inserted toothpick comes out clean.


In a bowl over a simmering saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter when it’s ready to add in orange juice and vanilla extract. Stir well and dip each already cooled muffin in the chocolate mixture. Drip any access and garnish with orange zest on top.
