Orange Chocolate cupcake

Every 15th or 1st of the Chinese calender, my mum will replenish the fruits (we called it offerings?) on the altar and will throw putaway the old ones.
So today I have 5 olds oranges in the kitchen. They are still eatable & Juicy after 15 days on the altar. So here's my Orange chocolate cupcakes.

B4 I bake, I knew this is a good recipe. Bcuz u need to "fold" ur eggwhites to the batter. I knew it's good, also, I knew I will have another heart-thumping session when comes to folding!
I hate folding eggwhites. Especially when the recipe calls for fold the eggwhite gently. I DONT LIKE THIS WORD ! for so many reason. I just can't do things in a gentle way.


1. Preheat the oven to 175C
2. Whisk the egg yolks with Sugar until pale. Then Add in Oil. continue whisking
3. Add in grated orange + orange juice. continue whisking
4. Add in shifted flour+baking powder+ salt ( divide into 5 portions and add in slowly)

5. Whipping time! Whip ur eggwhites (using machine), by adding the sugar bit by bit. Start at a slow mode... then slowly to faster mode. ( if u need help, ask from me! I have a good article demonstrate this. and I learned from that! and my eggwhites turned out quite good)
(note: my heart actually thumping hard when I do the whipping. afraid it will fail, or overbeat..)

6. ok, divide 3-4 portion of the egg whites, slowly fold into the eggyolk batter gently.
7. Divide into cups... drop some choco chips on top... and bake at 160C for 20 minutes or 1-2 minutes more.
