It’s alsmost the first day of fall but frankly, I have been in fall mode for at least a week. I love this season because I was born in October and falling leaves, changing colour, and the slightly cool and crisp air with some sunshine just get to me. Apples of course play a big role in fall so here we go with another apple recipe.

What do you do when you have a lot of buttermilk left over but no clue how to use it? You ask Facebook of course, or rather you friends on Facebook. That’s how I came across this recipe, which was generously provided by my friend Helene.
Oranges and chocolate go together like nothing else. It seems a natural combination that is prone to succeed. Making these muffins is really easy as well, you won’t even need a mixer, just a good whisk. Also, it’s a nice fresh combination because citrus fruits are always adding a little kick to everything.
This, my dear readers, is a very Canadian recipe though it comes from a very German cook book. I love it when you can tweak recipes to make them your own. I should do more things like that, more experiments so to speak.
The original recipes is with walnuts, but since I had none I just used pecans. They are pretty close to walnuts but have a less walnutty flavour. I find walnuts always a bit too bitter, so pecans work much better for me.
I used a basic muffin recipe from my German “Kleine Muffins ganz groß” (small muffins quite great). Because it comes from a German book I will put this under German baking. The recipe is originally for a white muffin I simply added some cocoa powder. The reason for making these little ones: I teach at Toddlers Sunday group. Muffins always work for those little ones and chocolate helps a little more.
