Orange Yogurt Muffins

IMG_8486Hi there– A couple weeks back our Micah and Jodi drove down the coast from San Francisco and after passing fruit stand after fruit stand, couldn’t resist stopping for some fresh produce.  They showed up with a big net bag of just picked oranges and oh, they were juicy sweet!

So one morning we turned a couple of those juicy orbs into bright citrusy muffins– they tasted a little bit like sunshine!  Good to start off any day…

2 oranges
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup unflavored yogurt
3/4 cup orange juice

Grate to peel off of the oranges and set aside.

Then mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Stir in the eggs, oil yogurt and orange juice and finally fold in the orange peel.  Pretty simple!

Spoon the batter into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers and pop them into the oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes–just until they are firm to the touch and start to brown around the edges.

  1. you do love your orange cakes don’t you Rhonda – I love them too, sadly I dont spend my days chasing little children so I cant manage to burn up as many as you can 🙂 – love fresh oranges, the best ones I ever had were fresh from the trees in morocco!

    • Hi Poli– When we lived in Seville, there were orange trees on the city streets that were harvested by the city and sold for marmalade– So we missed those, but loved the market oranges. That’s as close as I’ve come to Moroccan oranges!

      • oh but you lived in Seville and had the oranges there, other than the oranges you can buy in Iranian shops in LA where you get the sour ones, which I love and imagine to be close to the Sevile one, I have never managed to track those down. So I am jealous now :)!
