orange blender muffin recipe:
2 whole un-peeled oranges
1/2 cup orange juice
1 large egg (or 1/4 cup cooking oil)
1/2 cup margarine (butter or cooking oil work, too)
1 3/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat)...if using light spelt flour, up it to 2C
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup raisins
Cut oranges into 8 wedges (remove seeds if any).
Process orange juice and oranges in the blender until smooth
then add margarine or oil and process again.
Measure into a separate bowl, flour, sugar baking powder and baking soda and mix well. Add raisins. Pour contents from blender and stir just to moisten. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove onto cooling rack. Makes 16 muffins (or 12 large muffins).
Pour yourself a great cup of coffee and enjoy! ☺
