These muffins with chocolate chips, cherries, and raisins with a hint of delicate orange essence makes the most delicious treat. I love muffins because they are easy and quick to make. These are perfect for your morning or afternoon tea.I made these eggless Orange Muffins for a very special friend whom I met on the virtual world. Since the Christmas fever is on full swing, I decided on this edible gift for her.
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.
Coming back to meeting with my friend, we had a good time chatting like two lost souls.Yes, she liked these edible gifts so much which makes me feel so good .If you want to gift someone this festive season some baked goods, donot think twice, go ahead,and make these orange muffins a part of their life.
