Cooking With Yvie: Orange Muffins

Welcome to another episode of Cooking With Yvie!

I'm excited to have the chance to bring you another episode. In her latest culinary adventure, Yvie shows you how to make Orange Muffins. We make muffins all the time and I'd made these before, but I think if I had to make them again I might add some more sugar, and my oven burns hot so I think a little less cooking time than instructed might be better.

Having said that, we enjoyed them quite a bit. The recipe is beneath the video.


Orange Muffins

2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup yogurt
6 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon orange oil (optional, we didn't use this)

1. Preheat oven to 4oo degrees
2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in medium bowl, set side.
3. In large bown, whisk egg and yogurt until smooth; then whisk in orange juice, milk and orange oil, if using. Stir in flour mixture until moistened.
4. Fill into prepared muffin pans; bake for 20 minutes.

Those muffins look delicious, Yvie! You and Kennedy did a great job! I have a really good recipe for muffins that you make with mandarin oranges that I should send to your dad. I think you would have fun making them.

Those muffins made my mouth water. Watching Yvie with the orange zestor gave me the willies. I'd be afraid to use that thing.

Yvie, I just KNEW they were superb by the way your eyes lit up when you tasted them! Great job. You are such a good and patient cook. I like how you're teaching Kenna to follow in your footsteps, too. She did a wonderful job mixing. I look forward to these episodes every week!

Yummy orange! I have recipes for Orange Chip Cookies and Orange Brownies, but not for muffins. (well, now I do! :))
Also, I love reading the newspaper and prefer it to online. My favorite is the Chicago Suntimes. I even write to the columnists occasionally.
