  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Gently stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, salt, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and orange zest in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar, sour cream, milk, and eggs with an electric mixer on medium speed in a separate large mixing bowl until blended.
  3. Gently stir flour mixture into the liquid ingredients just until batter is moistened and smooth. Dissolve coffee granules in water in a small bowl and stir coffee mixture into the batter. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin, 20 to 25 minutes.

These muffins were amazing! Everyone loved them! All the flavors complimented each other quite nicely. I did replace a little of the milk with orange juice since I happened to have it on hand...

Made 2 dz. Lighter, not dense like some muffins. Just okay.

Very yummy, thanks for posting! This is a cake-y, not dense, muffin that is sooo chocolate-y that it feels sinful eating it for breakfast! Next time I will add more dried cranberries, that's per...
