Whole wheat flour(atta) added to these muffins cannot be even tasted. The orange flavours makes the muffins so light and airy you would not know the difference. Butter milk makes these muffins super soft. All ingredients in this recipe make a perfect combination. I have added orange marmalade which makes them extra orangey special! They all work really well.
These muffins can also be turned into cupcakes by adding frosting on top. Try these savoury Mexican jalapeno corn cheddar cheese muffins. For more eggless desserts try eggless chocolate cake, eggless chocolate brownies, ice cream cake. More desserts on FOI can be found be here.
Enjoy these refreshing orange muffins. Please do review the post and rate my recipes.

Notes
Adding buttermilk to muffins makes them extra soft. Skip it to make these muffins vegan

Use a combination of whole wheat flour and maida (all purpose flour) or only maida (all purpose flour)

Use a non-aromatic oil like sunflower/vegetable oil/filtered olive oil or even melted butter

Adding oats is optional but it adds a nice crunch and some fibre

If you do not have muffin tray, pour batter in a cake tin and bake into a cake

Grate only orange part while zesting and not whiter part which will be bitter

  1. Hey Vindhya,
    Have been following most of your recipes!
    They taste really good!
    Thank you..
    Waiting for a recipe on VV Puram Chat street style Mosaru KodubaLe with that particular tamarind chutney…

  2. Hi Vindhya,

    Thanks for a nice muffin recipe. Tried it today, it came out really soft and nice. It did not puff up as normal muffin. Did I do anything wrong?

    Regards,
    Deepa

    1. Hi Deepa,

      Thanks for trying out this recipe. If baking powder that was used is a bit old or past its expiry date then muffins do not fluff up well. It is the main ingredient to fluff up these muffins.
      Also try and ensure that muffin batter is not overmixed which takes out its lightness.

      Regards,
      Vindhya
