What a lovely way to start the day!
3/4 cup sugar
zest of 1 orange
1¾ cups flour
2½ tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (plus more for tops)
Preheat oven to 375°. Prepare 12 cup muffin baking pan with spray or papers. In large bowl, stir together sugar and orange zest (optional, let this sit for an hour for the oil from the orange zest to infuse the sugar). Add flour, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, stir together oil, sour cream, milk, orange juice, eggs, and vanilla. Pour liquid mixture into dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in mini chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with more mini chocolate chips if desired. Bake 18-20 minutes until center of muffins are set. Allow to cool in baking pan for about 10 minutes then remove to cooling rack. Substitute or add other mix-ins such as raspberries, raisins, nuts, etc.
