Orange Poppy Seed Muffins
I started out wanting to make an Orange Poppy Cake, but made these instead. I will make the cake one day next week and share then. I am going to my friends Patsy's and I always try to bring a snack of sorts.
1 orange quarter (peel and all)
1/2 cup orange juice (I used 1 tsp orange concentrate and water)
1/2 cup butter (soft) (i only use unsalted butter)
1 large egg
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup AP flour (sift the white and wheat together...makes them lighter)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
In blender or food processor blend orange segments, peel and all and orange juice until pureed. Add the egg and butter and puree again. In another bowl mix all dry ingredients except for the poppy seeds. Add orange mixture to dry ingredients all at once. Stir with wooden spoon until well mixed (don't over mix) add poppy seeds, mix. Pour into muffin tins fill 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes until tester comes out clean. Leave in pan to cool for 5 minutes then remove. Enjoy.
Hope you try these they are quick to make and delicious.
Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by. Remember to Find the Time to do All the things you love.
