Italian Brownie Muffins

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 cup olive oil
1 ½ cup sugar (up to 2 cups if you want it sweeter)
1 cup milk
1 tsp orange essence
2 large eggs
Orange zest
¼ cup coffee
1 cup cocoa
Pearl sugar
Pinch of salt

Mix the dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In a cup, mix the olive oil and cocoa. Add the wet ingredients – including the eggs and the cocoa mixture – to the dry ingredients. Mix until everything is incorporated. Preheat the oven to 350F. Use some cooking spray on your muffin pan, and then scoop the batter into the pan. Put some pearl sugar on top. Bake for about 25 minutes. Do you want to give your cupcakes a kick? Brush the bottom parts with some Grand Marnier mixed with a touch of sugar!
