Choc Orange Cheesecake Muffin

Chocolate Orange Cheesecake Muffins

Makes 12

You will need:

For the centre/frosting:

1 x 220 g pack of cream cheese (no low fat versions please!)

100 mls Orange Curd (for best results use my recipe of course)

digestive biscuits

For the muffins


125 ml plain yoghurt

125 ml milk

125 ml orange juice

8 oz self-raising flour

0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda

8 oz castor sugar

2.5 oz cocoa powder

pinch of salt

  • Turn the oven on to 180C (fan) and add some muffin papers to your muffin tray (or grease)
  • Leave the cream cheese out until it is at room temperature and then mix with the orange curd until smooth (I use a mixer for this but it can easily be done by hand!)
  • Bash the digestive biscuits into a fine rubble and then add about 2 thirds of it to the cream cheese mix and set aside

digestive biccies

  • Lightly beat the eggs in a big bowl and add the yoghurt, milk and orange juice
  • Sieve the flour, bicarb. and cocoa and then add to the liquid along with the sugar and gently mix together to form a batter
  • Fill the muffin papers about a third of the way up with the mix and then put a rounded teaspoon of the cream cheese mix in each one and finally, cover over with the remaining muffin mix
  • Bake in the oven for approx. 25 mins (check with a skewer to see if done – if the skewer comes out dry then you’re good to go!)
  • Leave the muffins to cool and then liberally spread with the cream cheese mix and a sprinkle of the remaining digestive rubble
  • Make yourself a cuppa and enjoy!
