At the downtown BB4CK kitchen, we bake a lot of muffins for Calgary kids! Orange muffins are one of our favourite types of muffins to make. To make orange muffins you will need:
1 Orange, quartered, with peel (remove any seeds)
1⁄2 cup Orange Juice
1⁄2 cup Butter
1 3⁄4 cups Flour
3⁄4 cup Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
Preheat the oven to 400 °F and use muffin cups or spray your muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Put the orange quarters and orange juice into a food processor (or blender) and blend until pureed.
Add the egg and butter to the pureed mixture in the processor. Blend again then pour mixture into a large bowl.
Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl then add all at once to the orange mixture. Stir well.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan, filling each cup about ¾ full.
Bake muffins in 400 °F over for 20 minutes. Let stand in muffin pan for 5 minutes after removing from oven. Enjoy!
