Eggless Orange, Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Cupcakes

When i planned to make some cupcakes,i know i'll be making with my favourite fruit Orange and here its a peak season for oranges. Obviously we get few kgs every week and we start almost our day with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Coming to this cute cupcakes, i prepared them with peanut butter and finely chopped white chocolate chunk, freshly squeezed orange juice.. Fresh orange juice,peanut butter and white chocolate, you wont believe me this combination works out tremendously prefect and we simply enjoyed thoroughly this very addictive cupcakes.

Cupcakes usually have icing on them and they are supposed to be little mini cakes, muffins dont have icing and they are usually have fruits in it. Cupcakes are usually prepared for special occasions while muffins are usually prepared to enjoy anytime of the day.Some says that cupcakes will be lighter in weight when compared to the muffins. Muffins goes awesome with coffee while cupcakes goes prefect with a cup of tea.Coming to this cupcakes,if you dont have white chocolate,you can go very well to dark chocolate or milk chocolate,somehow i love here the addition of white chocolate. Do check ChampaSrivalliSumana Deepak,Veena and Preeti Deo wat they baked for the  third day of bake-a-thon. Also check out the other bloggers running this 23rd edition of blogging marathon here.Sending these muffins to Kalyani's Magic Mingle with fruits and chocolate as this month's secret ingredients and to 60days of Christmas hosted by Priya and Divya.
