  • Start by making the chocolate muffins. In a mixing bowl add your flour, sugar and butter. Rub the butter into the flour and sugar until you have a mixture that resembles rough bread crumbs. Add the cocoa, honey, orange and vanilla essence and mix well.
  • In mixing jug mix together the milk and the egg and beat until it is a lovely pale colour.
  • Add the liquid to the bowl and beat with a fork until you have a lovely muffin batter.
  • With your muffin cases rub flour around the edges to stop them sticking and then place 2 tablespoons of the mixture into each one. Cook in the Air Fryer for 12 minutes. When cooked allow to cool on a baking rack.
  • Now make the creamy frosting. In a mixing bowl add the butter to a bowl and cream it with a wooden spoon until it is soft and creamy. Mix in the icing sugar and orange juice and mix really well until you have a delicious butter cream.
  • When the muffins are cool place a layer of cupcake cream on the top of each muffin with a nozzle until you are done.
  • Serve


Please make sure your muffins are cool before adding the topping. Otherwise it will melt the butter rather than creating a frosting.
