Chocolate Chip Orange Muffins

It's what I made this morning, while waiting for the HVAC guy to show up at my sweetheart's house for routine maintenance. So I figured I'd share the recipe with you, because you probably want to know it. Probably.

Chocolate Chip Orange Muffins

1-1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. chocolate chips
1-1/2 to 2 ts. grated orange peel*

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sift (or whisk - it's what I do these days, having no sifter) together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat the egg and add it to the flour mixture. Add the milk and oil, stirring only enough to moisten the flour. Mix in the chocolate chips and orange peel. Fill greased muffin tins (or use those little paper cups - handy!). Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes.

Makes 12 small or 6 medium muffins. The recipe made 10 muffins today. Why yes, there are 8 in my photo.
What of it?

*Today, as in ages long past, I used dried orange peel, which is available in the spice aisle, because it was all I had on hand. And it makes a serviceable muffin. But usually I use fresh-grated orange peel, which is awesometastic and in all ways far superior, including making a more flavorable, tender, and moist muffin. Just so you know that you can go either way, but fresh is far better.

Yummy! Looks and sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing!
I see 7. *giggles* You gave one to the HVAC guy, didn't you? ;-)

I . . . cannot count. Doh!

Since I ate two, this means I only made 9. But I did offer one to the HVAC guy.

Yes, I was going to point out the seven-not-eight muffins, too, perhaps with less tact. They do look good!

Counting apparently was too challenging for me the other day. *headdesk*
