I love sweet and juicy oranges for their flavor, taste and vibrant color. My love for this fruit is so much that I love anything and everything made with oranges. Citrus flavor in cakes and muffins excite me, so I decided to make these orange scented muffins.I have used fresh orange juice in this recipe  to provide moisture and help bind the ingredients together.

Homemade Muffins have that warmth to start your day with a sweet note. Being egg less, these are soft and light making it suitable for kid’s lunch box also.  My muffins with the citrus flavor was soft, fluffy and yummy. I pour some orange glaze over them and  serve them without icing.

These muffins are not too sweet, and have a perfect citrus flavor.They are just :

  • Perfectly moist because of the yogurt .
  • Perfectly flavored because of the the orange , cherries and raisins.

The muffin batter with plenty of real orange zest  provides plenty of flavor on its own. When these muffins are coated with glazed orange juice,  that really sets these beauties apart from the the normal muffins.

The recipe calls for mixing dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ingredients in another bowl, then combining the two together. We have to remember to mix the batter as little as possible. This way, the muffins will come out with a  tender crumb, and a soft, bread-like  texture.
