Choc Orange Mega Muffins

Not just mega sized, but mega flavour!  These are delicious and something a bit different, one of my absolute favourite muffin recipes.

3 eggs
⅓ cup vegetable oil – canola or sunflower
1 cup Greek yoghurt
½ cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Juice and zest of 3 oranges

4 tablespoons pure cocoa powder

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C

Whisk together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, yoghurt and oil until well combined.
Fold through the flour with the baking powder using a spatula.
Add the orange juice and the orange zest.

Divide the mixture in half.

To one half add the cocoa powder and a little milk if too dry, mix in well.
Spoon into jumbo muffin trays alternating between a spoon of orange mix and a spoon of chocolate mix so the two marble together.
Bake in a hot oven for 25 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack and dust with cocoa powder.

These freeze really well and can be warmed through and served with a spoon of ice-cream for a super indulgent dessert!
