Total Time 20 minutes
- 4 eggs
- 180 gr of sugar for the dough and a pinch more to sprinkle
- half orange juice with its peel
- 220 gr of flour
- 200 gr of sunflower oil
- 15 g of yeast or baking powder
- pinch of salt
- To begin, we will place the orange, chopped and with its peel, in a bowl, so it is critical that it has been thoroughly washed. We'll also add the 180 grams of sugar and the four eggs here, and crush everything together until we have a fairly fine mixture.
- Now we'll add the sunflower oil and mix it in. We can do it with hand rods or electric ones at low speeds until the oil is incorporated into the mixture.
- In contrast, we will combine the flour, a pinch of salt, and the yeast or baking powder in a container. We'll move everything and also incorporate it into the bowl, using a sieve or strainer to make the flour looser. We will continue to mix until the dough is free of lumps.
- We've already made the dough for our orange muffins; now we'll chill it for about 20 or 30 minutes to settle and cool. We will preheat the oven to high temperature and prepare the molds a few minutes before taking it out of the fridge. When we take the dough out of the fridge, we move it around a little so that it is uniform, and we fill the molds with it, not to the maximum capacity, because the muffin dough will expand in the oven and may overflow. Finally, a pinch of sugar will be sprinkled on top of each cupcake.
- We'll put the first batch of muffins in the oven, which will be very hot already. We'll bake them for about 15 minutes at 180oC, with the heat turned up and down, without opening the oven, or until they're cooked and golden brown. When they come out of the oven, they will be warm, cooled on a rack, and ready to eat!
- Prepare the ingredients ahead of time because, as you are probably aware, it is recommended that they be at room temperature for pastry recipes.
- It is critical to bake the muffins in rigid molds so that they retain their shape and grow well in the oven. We can use standard muffin trays or individual flan type molds, which are very comfortable and allow us to make tall and large muffins
