Orange Toffee Muffins
I had some oranges that needed to be used so thought I'd throw a muffin together. I took a couple of recipes and combined them. These are really tasty and moist, with just the right amount of crunch. I made these the night AJ made his Quesadillas. He's learning to cook and 2 times a month I help him with a recipe. I will post some pictures of him making his dinner. It's so good that kids learn to cook. When they make things and really like them and people tell them how good it is they have the desire to cook and be creative. PS AJ just loved these, well actually we all did.
1-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk + 2 TBL
1 whole orange pureed (peel and all)
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 regular size hersey milk chocolate bar (broken into pieces)
1/2 bag of toffee chips or you could use candy bars(1.4 ounces each) chocolate-covered toffee bars (such as Skor or Heath bars), divided
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line muffin tin cups with muffin/ cupcake papers. Makes 6 large muffins for 12 regular size.
Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix milk, sour cream, melted butter, egg, pureed orange and vanilla extract. Stir liquid ingredients into dry mixture, just until moistened. Fold in most of the toffee bits and hersey chocolates (reserve about 2 - 3 TBL of bits). Spoon batter into muffin liners. Sprinkle remaining toffee bits over each unbaked muffin.
Hope you try these, it is a really simple, quick recipe. Thanks for taking time to stop by. Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things YOU love.
