Orange poppyseed muffins | 16 comments:



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.

  2. Cheah, your muffins look pretty with poppy seeds. I think I'll add black sesame seeds instead when I want to bake this.

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