The Original recipe belongs to Simple Daily Recipes bThis my improvisations and how i made them with out the muffin baking tray.
Ingredients for 12 muffins
1/4 cup butter, softened but NOT melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup fresh milk
2 tablespoons orange zest finely grated
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
Using an electric mixer (not a stand mixer), cream butter in a medium-size bowl. Gradually add sugar; continually beating until light and fluffy.
Add egg and beat in well.
Add orange zest and juice.
Stir in milk,
For the dry ingredients, sift flour then measure out 2 cups into another small bowl. Add baking powder, and salt; sift again. Add flour mixture to the wet mixture and stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. DO NOT BEAT.
Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full and bake for 11 to 14 minutes. Remove muffins immediately from pan. Can be served hot or at room temperature.
A Note from Meb&b&b&b&In the absence of muffin cake dish, i have to bake the cake to a normal one.
