Orange muffins with olive oil and honey

Orange muffins with olive oil and honey

Today we bring you some orange muffins, olive oil and honey… a simply spectacular bite. 100% homemade, healthy and delicious ingredients. What more can we ask for? Making homemade muffins is very simple, you just have to keep two tricks in mind: let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes before baking them and never ever open the oven door until 15 minutes have passed. The rest… give it all the flavor with the best ingredients:

  • Orange: in this case we have chosen to use orange, because for my taste it combines perfectly with olive oil and honey, but you can also use lemon and it would be phenomenal. The key is to use the orange zest to prepare a flavored icing sugar. That will greatly enhance Flavor and smell of our cupcakes.
  • Olive oil: a key and basic ingredient if we want our cupcakes to have that home flavor, and "to town". Also, using olive oil instead of butter in our pastry recipes will make us have a much healthier product. Although it cannot be changed in some specific recipes (eg puff pastry), there are many others where we can change or alternate them (eg biscuits, muffins, cookies...). we leave you this interesting article from our friends at Low Preserve where you can learn more about the benefits of using EVOO instead of butter.
  • Honey: honey is a wonderful ingredient to make pastries such as biscuits, cookies or muffins. It gives it an exquisite flavor, as well as a texture and moisture that makes our buns delicious. Honey, in general terms, sweetens more than sugar, so if, for example, the original recipe uses 1 cup of sugar, we will use 2/3 of the cup of honey. Also, it combines great with the flavor of orange and olive oil. Perfect match!

It is important that for these recipes with such leading and important ingredients we use good quality ones. For this reason, we always recommend the products of cotobajo. Specifically for this recipe, we have used field flower honey which gives it an absolutely delicious flavor and delicate arbequina olive oil that has the perfect intensity and the ideal homemade flavor for our muffins. We encourage you to visit their website and their online store because they have exquisite products, very much from our land.
