Aliciouslyvegan: Orange muffins

Regularly will I come across recipes I really like. These I will then bookmark, copy into a word file with similar recipes or print out. Often, I will soon forget about them.

Every now and then, however, I will open a website and quite literally drool over the keyboard. These are the recipes I’ll scrawl on a post-it, put in my wallet and try the next weekend. Or the next day. Or as soon as I get home.

Today’s recipe was of the latter category. Unexpectedly, it was featured in the online version of the Austrian newspaper Der Standard which runs a weekly vegan recipe blog called 365vegan.

In the three weeks since it appeared online I made those muffins three (!) times, tweaking the recipe ever so slightly. For my latest version which I also followed for Mr A’s all-vegan birthday brunch last Sunday I washed, then boiled the oranges for 45 minutes before mixing them with an immersion blender.Orange muffins in the making

I switched to a hand mixer and slowly added the remaining ingredients, then spooned the dough into little tins.Orange muffins in the making

Into the oven they went, out they came hot and delicious and smelling sooo good!

Ingredients
  1. 500g untreated oranges
  2. 100g brown sugar
  3. 100g white flour
  4. 150g whole wheat flour
  5. 6 tbsp oil
  6. 1 package baking powder
  7. 2 tbsp slivered almonds, roasted
  8. 2 tbsp uncut oats
Instructions
  1. Wash the oranges thoroughly, then boil them in water for approximately 45 minutes.
  2. Take oranges out of the water, cut them in half and remove any seeds, then mix them with an immersion blender. I prefer the result to be not completly mushy/ watery but with some little chunks from the skin still intact.
  3. Slowly add remaining ingredients, stirring thoroughly (either by hand or with a hand mixer).
  4. Spoon into muffin tins (or tiny little bundt cake tins like I did with half the batch) and bake for approximately 20 minutes at 180°C.
Notes
  1. I like them best with butter and orange marmelade.
