These smell devine..

Orange Toffee Muffins
Made these muffins (yes despite the bathroom interruptions!) this morning with the girls, I got a recipe from and modified it a little (don't I always!!??) - what can I say, they are delicious and end up having a crunchy-caramelly-orangey top. It made 3 dozen for me, so I've frozen 27 of them in sandwich-size ziplock bags in lots of 3 (you could get 4 each in those if you needed to) for trips out on weekends or afternoon tea on the way home from kindy.

Ingredients: (I just put these all on the scales together)
  • 500grams plain flour
  • 200grams of white sugar
  • 100grams of brown sugar
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 large navel oranges - zest and juice (about 320ml juice you'll need)
  • 220gr melted butter or margarine
  • 4 large eggs
Basically, choose whether you want ot use a mixer or not - I didn't and we all got a turn of combining the ingredients.. fun. mix the dry ingredients together, and then add one-by-one the wet ingredients.

Whack into patty pans in your muffin tin and then into a preheated 180deg oven and cook until deep golden brown on top (about 20 mins in my fan-forced).

Let cool for about 15-20 and serve. You could also serve these hot with icecream and/or toffee sauce.

Here's some gratuitous shots of the 'apples of my eyes' :)
