Easy Orange Muffins
Wed 30th, May, 2012
Good Morning Beach Cottage friends Well here to share a Morning Muffin with you today, you like a muffin in the morning, I am sure.
Now this recipe comes courtesy of my lovely daughter Miss Beach Cottage, who, on a Sunday arvo can often be found pottering with flour, eggs and a few vintage mixing bowls…this girl gets from baking those things that other people talk about …that therapeutic mixing of things….for me that comes more with throwing things in a pot and letting it bubble away for the whole day…
but I tell you what slowly and with the introduction of cups into my life as measurements, baking has become something that happens regularly around here…and there is nothing like keeping males in one’s house happy than muffins.
So this came from a friend, I don’t know where she got it from, but she rocked up at a Morning Tea with a plate, and on it were these. I ate one with a coffee, fell in love and promptly nagged her for the recipe.
We really like these – simple to make, easy ingredients, tasty and just good to have in the kitchen in the mornings…of course they are Dump & Go, I never do fussing and faffing in baking…it it goes, mix and hope for the best…these pass that test with flying colours…oh and I don’t have a food processor or any kind of mixer (no that man in the red suit still has not delivered to my fair hands a KitchenAid, one day ladies, one day) – I have a bowl (ahem rather a few vintage ones), a spoon and one tuck shop arm.
