Fresh Orange Muffins at Inn at Playa del Rey
If you read my last post, you know I took my Novio to a very special B&B for his birthday.
Our room was beautiful and we enjoyed a terrific breakfast there…
The orange muffins had an amazing essence of orange. SOOO good! I found out that the recipe calls for using the whole orange - pith and all. Everything but the seeds. I don’t normally do this but I had to share the recipe before I actually tried it at home. So, dear readers – here it is with only the finished product at the inn to show for it. I’ll definitely make these little delights at home very soon.
Fresh Orange Muffins
Ingredients:1 orange, quartered, seeds removed (with peel) 1/2 c. orange juice 1 large egg 1/2 c. unsalted butter 1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour 3/4 c. sugar 1 t. baking powder 1 t. baking soda
Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a 12 muffin tin with light cooking spray and set aside.
Put orange quarters in blender (or food processor) with orange juice and process until pureed.
Add egg and butter to blender (or food processor) and combine. Pour into large bowl.
Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to orange mixture. Stir until just combined.
Fill muffin cups to 3/4 full.
Bake for 16-18 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand in muffin tin before removing.
Thanks to everyone at the inn for a beautiful time, including home-baked chocolate chip cookies upon arrival, milk upon request to go with it, wine & cheese and the retrieval of a very special ring…
