Choc Chips Orange Cupcakes

Tasty and easy to bake orange flavoured cupcakes with choc chips. Citrus flavor of this buttery cupcake blends well with the sweet choc chips.
Love the way these cupcakes rose - beautifully.  These would be good for gatherings and small parties.
I reduced the sugar and the sweetness is just nice for me cos' the choc chips are bitter sweet too.

Kimmy, your choc chips orange cupcakes looks very good. Hardly any cracks. My cupcakes tend to crack. Did you use Mandarin oranges? There are so many leftover at home and I am thinking of using them in bakes.

Hi Phong Hong, I didn't use Mandarin oranges cos' this year I didn't buy much as they weren't good. The zest does affect the flavours and taste of this cupcakes. I supposed you can use mandarin oranges provided the juice is sweet. Some are really tasteless.

Hi Victoria, it is a good combination and really simple to prepare. Makes many too.
