Chocolate Potato Muffins

Chocolate-potato cupcakes – they are tender, soft and very tasty. And orange glaze perfectly complements and shades chocolate taste. You can take a dough layout and cook one big cupcake instead of a few small ones. By the time of its baking it will take about 45-60 minutes, depending on which configuration shape you choose (in the mold with a hole it will be baked faster).
