This week it was his turn to pick the recipe but he asked me to take the reins and I've obliged. We weren't able to bake this weekend because I was in Chicago for work and fun, so we hope to bake one morning before I head to work. For that reason, I decided that we should make breakfast muffins. These Fresh Orange Muffins from food.com sound good and simple, too.
They're not very snazzy looking. I wonder what I can do that will be simple but will also make them pretty? I may explore that, or I may settle for the "ugly but good" version. Also, I read that these are good with a small amount of chocolate chips added in. I don't think I'll do that, but it sounds promising.
1 orange, quartered and seeds removed (with peel)
1/2 cup orange juice
1 large egg
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 400F; spray a muffin tin (12) with non-stick cooking spray like Pam and set aside. Put orange quarters in food processor (or blender) along with orange juice and process or blend until pureed. Add egg and butter to food processor and combine; pour into large bowl. Combine dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, then add all at once to orange mixture. Stir to combine. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes; remove from oven and let stand in tin for 5 minutes before removing muffins.
