Orange Muffins

I had bookmarked this recipe few days back from .... But my confidence in baking a cake and alike is very poor. Finally over the weekend I decided to give it a shot. The major reason was my kiddo who suddenly wanted to eat a cake and just wouldn't stop demanding even after I told her that I had no cake or muffins (readymade) at home. So I decided to gather my guts and after a silent prayer, got on the job. Surprisingly, the muffins came out quite good. So, I am happy to present it.

Also, I would like to send it to a few events :

1) Bookmarked Recipes Volume 20 by Priya Mitharwal of Mharo Rajasthan.

2) Cakes & Cookies for Xmas by Dr. Sameena of My Culinary Creations.

3) Bake Off by Champa of Versatile Vegetarian Kitchen.

4) Vegetarian Foodie Fridays by Melodie

Ingredients :
All Purpose flour : 1 1/2 Cup
Sugar : 1/2 Cup
Melted Butter : 1/2 Cup
Egg : 1
Milk : 1/4 Cup
Baking powder : 1 3/4 tsp
Salt : 1/2 tsp
Nutmeg Powder : 1/4 tsp
Oranges : 4

Recipe :
Preheat oven to 175 C for 20 minutes.

Peel the oranges. We will use just the pulp. I cut each slice into half and then peeled it. Keep aside.

Take a large bowl. Sift Flour, salt and baking powder in it. Do it from a bit of height for it to get an airing. Add sugar.

Melt the butter and cool it. Add it to the flour.

Beat the egg slightly. Add milk in ti and stir it well.

Pour this into the flour and mix it well. Add the oranges and mix again.

Fill this mixture in greased muffin tins till 3/4 capacity. I used paper cases for muffins and filled them with this mixture.

Keep the muffin tray in upper shelf of oven.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve as desired.
