I'm mad for citrus at the moment, and I can't tell you why. It seems odd because citrus really isn't in season, it might be because I've just returned from 2 1/2 weeks in snow and sub-zero temperatures and my body is a bit confused. Anyways, at least citrus isn't hideously expensive at the moment and you don't need a lot of it to make this delicious stash.
Although I did make these because of my cravings, it was in part to build up my stash again for lunches.. but I will confess a few may go missing...
1 large orange
1 medium lemon
2 small limes
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup golden caster sugar (or regular if you don't have it handy)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup milk
2 1/2 cups self raising flour
2/3 cup dried cranberries/craisins
Preheat oven to 190 degrees c
Half all the fruit, and drain the juice into a mixing bowl. Do not throw away the peel, set aside.
In a blender, add the peels, and blend until smooth.
Add the peel back to the juice. Add the sugar, stir well.
Add oil, cinnamon and egg, stir again.
Lastly add milk, flour then cranberries, stir well.
Pour into muffin/cupcake papers and bake for 15-20 minutes.
These smell so good at this point you'll be licking the bowl..
And you'll be hungry while they bake, sorry thought I should warn you!
Freeze in ziplock bags for up to 3 months
