With so many receipes galore on the variations on the making of assorted muffins, i decided to try my hands on baking homemade muffins as well. I came across a receipe from a cooking book borrowed from the community library which features mostly collections of dishes focussed on healthy living, healthy cooking, which means low carb, low fat and high fibre.
The simple steps of this carrot & orange muffin caught my eye. This is my 2nd attempt at the making and the muffins turned out lovely indeed. In fact, carrot & orange as blended juice are already a "hit" with many as the combi of both contents are high in fibre and Vitamin C. A delightful indulgence without feeling sinful and 'fuss free'.
150g self raising flour
100g semi skimmed milk ( i used meiji low fat fresh milk instead )
zest & juice of one orange
125g coarsely grated carrot
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
2 tbsp corn oil
1/2 tsp baking flour
Shift flour, baking powder, grated carrot, orange zest & sugar into a mixing bowl. Mix well. Set aside.
Mix milk, sugar, orange juice, oil till well blended.
Make hole in the centre of the flour bowl and pour in liquids and mix till well blended.
Pour into muffin cups and place in well greased muffin tins.
Bake in preheat oven of 200 degrees for about 20mins.
