Breakfast muffins can be made in a variety of ways. This is one of my favorite ways to eat muffins in the morning, and I simply had to share this delicious recipe with you. If you don’t like oranges, try substituting another fruit. That’s the beauty of muffins: they can be used in a variety of ways.

Orange Muffins

What can I do with a bunch of oranges?

Oranges may be used in a variety of recipes, including this breakfast muffin recipe. Other recipes, such as homemade orange juice, orange rolls, candied oranges, and so on, are also excellent ways to use up any leftover oranges.

Vitamin C and antioxidants are abundant in oranges and other citrus fruits, which can aid in the battle against infection and disease. They’re also abundant in fiber, which makes them a fantastic help for healthy digestion.

Oranges are delicious, but they also have a low glycemic index. This means they cause a slower rise in blood sugar than other foods high in natural sugars, making them a suitable choice for diabetics and those who want to keep their blood sugar levels in check.

Orange Muffins

Can you substitute orange juice for milk in a muffin recipe?

In muffin recipes, milk can be used in place of orange juice. Both milk and orange juice contribute moisture, but if you choose to use orange juice instead of milk, some recipes may take a little longer to bake through.

It’s worth noting that this recipe doesn’t call for a lot of orange juice and already contains milk. As a result, you’ll want to add that much extra milk to replace the precise amount of juice you were intending to use. You don’t want your muffins to be too thin because that will cause them to rise and fall unevenly.

How do I store and warm my muffins?

Once cool, store these muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for at least five days. If you like, you may put them in the refrigerator or keep them on the shelf for a few days longer.

Before eating, you can reheat all of your leftover muffins in the microwave. Heat for 10-15 seconds, or until you reach the appropriate temperature.

Can you freeze muffins?

Yes, chocolate chip muffins can be frozen. I recommend putting them in a lined pan and then sealing them in a freezer bag. Reheat till warm in the microwave! Muffins for breakfast can be frozen for up to three months.

Orange Breakfast Muffins are a delicious way to start the day, and this recipe is ideal for a change of pace. This muffin recipe, which includes fresh-squeezed orange juice, is flavorful and nutritious, making it ideal for fueling your body in the morning. They’re also simple to make and pack for mornings on the road!

Expert Tips:

  • Do not open the oven door or you run the risk of ending up with flattened muffins.
  • Do not beat the dough like a cake, which prevents the muffins from rising and makes them heavy.
  • Never fill the muffin molds more than three-quarters full and place them in the center of the oven.
  • Using vegetable oil results in lighter muffins because it prevents gluten formation in the flour. On the other hand, butter adds more fluffiness to the dough.
  • Silicone molds give better results than paper molds, which burn easily.

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 whole oranges

Instructions

  4. Add egg, sugar, milk, oranges pieces, juice, and butter in another medium bowl. With a hand mixer or a whisk, mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  5. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients, mixing as little as possible, just enough to obtain a moist batter.

  • Do not open the oven door or you run the risk of ending up with flattened muffins.
