White Chocolate and Orange Muffins

I think white chocolate and orange work really good together, but if you fancy another combination this is a really good basic muffin recipe. Also, I've used orange extract, which you can pick up in the supermarket these days, but if you struggle to get hold of that vanilla works great as well. This mix will make about 12 muffins.

Prep time: 15 Mins
Baking time: 20 - 25 Mins
125ml Vegetable Oil
200g Caster Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1Tsp Orange Extract
250g Plain Flour
1/2Tsp Baking Powder
250g Plain Yoghurt
150g White Chocolate (Chopped up roughly)

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6 and line 12 cup muffin tray with cases. In a large bowl whisk together the sugar and the eggs then slowly pour in the oil, followed by the orange extract. Sift in half of the flour and baking powder, stir in half the yoghurt, then sift in the rest of the flour and baking powder followed by the rest of the yoghurt. Fold through the chocolate then spoon evenly into the muffin tray. 

Bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 mins, until a skewer or sharp knife can be cleanly removed from the centre. Leave to cool on a wire rack. How easy is that!
