Orange Muffins

Promised RX (little girl's cousin, a very pretty girl with beautiful eyes) to bake her some muffins last Sat.  As I was quite tired after the day out on Mon, I had to wake up early on Tue morning to bake this batch of orange muffins.

The recipe was from Alex Goh's "Creative making of Cakes".


200 g      Flour
1/4 tsp    Baking powder
1/2 tbsp  Milk powder
250g       Butter

5              Eggs
175g         Sugar

2 tbsps   Orange juice
Zest of 1 orange

I altered his method of making the muffins as I hand-beaten the batter, so here was my method:

1. Whip (B) til light and thick
2. Add (C) into (B) and mix til evenly blended
3. Fold in bit of dry ingredients from (A), mix well, then bit of melted butter, mix well, then repeat dry and wet til all blended
4. Place the batter into muffin cups
5. Bake at 190 C for 20 minutes

I added some chocolate chips to a few baby muffins as little girl adore chocolate chips very much.  So, here are the end results:

Kiddy version: Orange muffins with chocolate chips and plain orange muffins

Adult version: orange muffins

We visited RX n her family after 3pm, little girl enjoyed playing with RX, her chubby bro JX and quiet cousin QR.  Hope her family likes and enjoys the muffins.
