Whole Wheat Apple & Orange Muffins

I believe the world to be a muffin pan, and there certainly are a lot of muffins here.
Aaron Funk


Cute that was isn’t it? And indeed there are a lot of muffins any which ways you take, the literal way or otherwise. I love just throwing various ingredients in a bowl and coming up with different combinations for muffins, to eat them for breakfast or to take them for travel or to eat with your evening tea.

Sometime ago, O announced that he is having friends over for a play date and he wants me to bake some muffins and the friends would be home in 30 mins, yes he is just 6 yrs in case you are wondering. sigh they grow up way too fast. Anyways I looked around in my pantry to see what did I have at home, two apples, one orange and some orange juice. The decision was made it will be Apple and Orange muffins

The kids came, ate infact gobbled them all up and I was a happy mom, another reason I love muffins so much. Quick to make but yet so yummy



Recipe – Apple and Orange Whole Wheat Muffins

What I used

  • 1/2 cup orange juice (I used store bought, u can use home made, increase the sugar in that case)
  • 1 tbsp orange peel
  • 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup  apple (peeled and chopped)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon for topping

How I made

  1. In a bowl, combine orange juice and orange peel; set aside.
  2. In an another large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat the egg, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apple. Add the orange juice mixture and fold
  3. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full. Top with the sugar and cinnamon mixture
  4. Bake at 180°C for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

    That looks delicious, as everything else you make, Monu.

    You remember Theobroma, the hot chocolate place? They have this “orange juice cake’ that they sell by the slice. Next time you’re in town, must attack!

    This goes on my long to-try list. I’ve never made anything with orange juice yet.
