Orange Cupcakes

Orange Cupcakes are among one of the few goodies which I bake regularly. I saw this recipe a couple of years ago in a magazine. I was primarily attracted to this because it was egg less. I avoid the icing part since it tastes good even without it. For more kid- friendlier version. Even we elders love this. Banana & orange make a fabulous combination .Since their sweet and sour taste perfectly complement the orange juice used in the cakes. These are tasty and easy to make . Try to use freshly squeezed orange juice for the best flavor. You’ll need to have fresh oranges on hand for their zest . The cupcakes rose beautifully and had a great texture; soft, so fluffy and delicious!


Ingredients:

All purpose flour-1 1/2 cups

Sugar-1 cup

Baking powder-1 tsp

Baking soda-1/2 tsp

Orange juice-1cup

Vegetable Oil /butter- ½ cup

Ripe, Mashed, Banana – 1

Vanilla extract-1 tsp

Orange zest-1 tbsp

Nuts -(optional)

Orange colour-1/2 tsp



Method:

In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.

In a medium bowl, smash banana whisk together orange juice, vegetable oil,/butter, vanilla and orange zest. Pour into dry ingredients and stir until just combined and no streaks of flour remain.

Distribute batter evenly into prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let cool for 5 minutes in the muffin pan and then remove them from the pan.

Still Iam busy in my work .So i am not able to visit all your blogs often . Will catch u all soon:)
