"Modified from a recipe in a coffeehouse series mystery. You may add a frosting or glaze, but these are sweet enough on their own."

sifted all-purpose flour
semisweet chocolate chips
minced orange zest
instant coffee granules
Definatly a lighter more cake-like texture although we found it a bit dry. We loved the orange chocolate coffee flavor but could have done without the cranberries and chips
I LOVED how these muffins turned out. As others said, these are cakey muffins: moist, fluffy and deliciously chocolatey! I did however tweak the recipe to my hubby's liking by removing the orange zest and cranberries and doubling the chocolate chips.I was able to make 16 large muffins from this recipe. I will definitely make these again!
Wow, there is so much going on in these muffins! They are a lighter, cake-like muffin. The orange and chocolate flavors are predominant with only slight undertones of the cranberries and coffee. Personally, I would prefer these for an after dinner sweet rather than breakfast. I made the entire recipe and got 22 muffins. I hope they freeze well. **Update - Oddly enough, the next day after having sat under a cake dome, these muffins were not cake-like at all. They had more of a muffin texture.
These muffins were amazing! Everyone loved them! All the flavors complimented each other quite nicely. I did replace a little of the milk with orange juice since I happened to have it on hand, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written and they turned out great. I actually got 18 muffins out of this rather than the 12 stated though. I will definitely be making these again!
Made 2 dz. Lighter, not dense like some muffins. Just okay.
Very yummy, thanks for posting! This is a cake-y, not dense, muffin that is sooo chocolate-y that it feels sinful eating it for breakfast! Next time I will add more dried cranberries, that's personal taste, I loved them in all that chocolate and coffee. (I used two strong shots of espresso in place of the 1/4 cup water and coffee granules and that worked.) Thanks again
