This week I am working on sweet treats that are ready within an hour or less. My second recipe for the week are these citrus flavored Orange Muffins. Muffins are something that I bake very often. I make it for breakfast, for snacks or for dessert. I usually make my muffins in the tiny muffin tins, but I am realizing in the past few months that my boys are eating multiple muffins at one go. That is when I knew that it was time I stopped making my mini sized muffins and started making them the usual size.

Even though I am working on sweet treats recipe this week, I have to admit that these muffins are not very sweet. They are perfect for breakfast or for a late night snack. I am one person in my family who is most tempted for a late night snack. This muffin was perfect for late night snacking as it is not very sweet and has a wonderful citrus flavor.

I am loving my egg less bakes that I am substituting with sour cream. The texture of the muffins was wonderful and it yielded a beautiful mounded top when baking. The recipe asks for fresh orange juice and that is something I would absolutely insist on. Please try to use fresh orange juice for the maximum flavor.

I will be baking this muffin soon with a little more sugar for my husband and my oldest son. They were very unhappy that the muffins were not sweet enough for them. This was one of the rarest times that I did not have to fight for a snack with my family. I loved these just as is and it was even more delightful with some softened butter.

  1. Your muffins would be gone in a second at our house. We love muffins. They are great as a snack but I really like them at breakfast. The orange flavor would be such a nice fresh taste. I bet it didn’t take long before they were all devoured.

  2. These muffins sound wonderful to me. I always love citrus, but seem to crave it in the winter. Sour cream always makes cakes tender and moist. I am very intrigued that you could substitute sour cream for the eggs! As these muffins aren’t very sweet, they might be delicious with jam for breakfast or with tea.

  3. I didn’t know that you could substitute sour cream for eggs! Wow – you taught me something. I love that these are not-so-sweet. I’m not a huge sweets fan – and these look good.

  4. I love anything with a hint of citrus so this is right up my alley! Love that it’s also egg-free which means I can bake this for a friend who’s allergic to eggs. Thanks!

  5. Oh yum! Definitely giving these a try. I love that they don’t have eggs, so they’ll be super easy to veganise. Also, orange muffins are my favourite. I may throw a little cranberries in there too!
