Orange poppyseed muffins



The orange flavour of these muffins comes from the zest in the batter and the brushing of fresh orange juice once they exit from the oven.  They are moist and crunchy, best eaten on the day they're made.  Good for breakfast, tea or as a snack anytime of the day!












Left overs taste better when they're warmed for a minute or two.

    1. Yes, the addition of poppy seeds does enhance the texture of the bakes.

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
