  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk eggs, 1/2 cup plus 2 1/2 tablespoons orange juice, 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons ricotta, vegetable oil, milk, sugar, orange zest, sour cream, and vinegar in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; pour in egg mixture and chocolate chips. Stir until flour is just moistened. Be sure not to overmix to avoid overly tough muffins.
  4. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter into each muffin cup.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Fresh orange juice works best, but store-bought works too.
  • Omit the chocolate chips and add a chocolate frosting for an easy cupcake.
