Win The Baker’s Pantry Essentials Pack From The Vanilla Food Company

Last night after a very long day of work, I just wanted to stay home and bake. I received the Bakers Pantry Essentials Pack from the Vanilla Food Company to review, this is all I needed to bake a delicious treat.

I love to make my own muffins and experimenting with what I have available in the pantry. I made some Orange Zesty Chocolate Chip Muffins with my bakers essential pack. Using absolutely no sugar just the semisweet chocolate callets and cocoa powder, I managed to whip up some delicious tasting muffins.

2 eggs
1 cup of milk
1 orange zest
1 orange juiced
1tbsp of baking powder
1 tbsp of baking soda
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1 tbsp of Nielsen Massey Natural Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups of wholewheat flour
1/2 cups of Callebaut Dark Semisweet Chocolate Callets


  1. In bowl shift the baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and wholewheat flour. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixer bowl. Leave out chocolate callets till last.
  2. In a separate bowl beat eggs, milk, vanilla extract, orange juice and orange zest.
  3. Now, mix and fold in the liquid ingredients with dry ingredients. Mix by hand till all dry ingredients have been incorporated.
  4. Add the Chocolate callets.
  5. If you don’t have muffin liners make sure to oil or butter the muffin tins. With a spoon, spoon into muffin tins.
  6. Bake for 45-55 min or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
  7. Cool in a pan 10 minutes and remove form pan and cool completely on wire rack.
