Tuesdays With Dorie – Citrus Sunshine Muffins

by Jessica on March 15, 2011

Citrus Sunshine Muffins

I’m not a big fan of currants. You won’t find any in my Irish Soda Bread, or last week’s Beggar’s Linguine and certainly not in these Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins (sorry Lauryn & Dorie!). What you will find is a burst of orange and lemon flavors with the added bite of dark chocolate chips. Quick to put together (literally, less than 30 minutes from start to finish) and perfect for a Saturday morning breakfast on the patio, complete with coffee and a cool breeze.

Thanks to this week’s sweet hostess, Lauryn of Bella Baker. If you’re looking for the recipe, check her cute blog… and if you want to see the other TWD members who participated this week, check the ‘Leave-Your-Link’ page!

Very pretty! Dark chocolate sounds like a great variation… when is it not a great variation? 🙂

well, chocolate chips are always the perfect addition, if you ask me! YUM! They look beautiful!

That is such a great image to start the moning off..these muffins, with coffee on a patio and a nice cool breeze! They look great! I added chocolate chips to some of mine too, they are so tasty!
Im glad you enjoyed this recipe!

dark chocolate and orange is a killer combo. i’d love to have one of these muffins. i didn’t have currants so i used raisins.

I love that you added chocolate chips to these. I think mine could have been a little sweeter so the chips would have been good in them. HOpe you are having a great week.

I’d take dark chocolate over currants any day! Good thinking.

I bet these were great with dark chocolate! I like currants so I added those, but I guess a lot of people don’t like them.

I should have done it! Yours look so good I want to make them again with chocolate chips (chocolate and orange are such a great flavor combo).

your pics are lovely with the sunlight bouncing off these sunshine muffins.

I went with dates because I love them–but not as much as dark chocolate. Your muffins look so delish.
Thanks for all you do to keep TWD an awesome blog group. I do appreciate you. Have a great day.

Your muffins look like I would imagine these should perfectly look.

they look sunny and wonderful! i’ll be happy when it’s warm enough here to sit on the patio. 🙂

I love you cupcake liners, they look so happy with the already happy-looking muffins! Great idea to use chocolate chips instead of those pesky currants. 😀

I’m not usually big on orange + chocolate combos but these look like an exception! Yum!


15 Jules March 15, 2011 at 10:55 pm

Orange and chocolate is one of the best food combos ever! These look delicious.


16 Clivia March 16, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Go chocolate! Your muffins looks lovely.


17 Jill March 16, 2011 at 7:33 pm

I loved the currants, but you can’t go wrong with chocolate! Your muffin looks beautiful.


18 yummychunklet March 16, 2011 at 9:59 pm

I feel your hesitancy about the currants. I would probably leave them out because I don’t care for currants and raisins. But, the muffins look great regardless!


19 Tracey March 16, 2011 at 10:15 pm

You can never go wrong adding chocolate to muffins, at least in my opinion 🙂 Love your photos – so bright and sharp!


20 Judy March 16, 2011 at 11:24 pm

I like currants, actually, but I thought the chocolate was a tasty addition to these muffins. We’re in the chocolate camp.

Your wrappers are so cute! They are bright and sunny, just like these muffins.
