Traditional orange cupcake recipe with the same old flavor

We love the muffins that you can find in the typical village bakery, that dense and flavorful crumb brings back childhood memories, and whenever we have the opportunity, we get a bag of them. Today we want to reproduce the flavor of this classic pastry with this recipe for traditional orange muffins, and we believe we have succeeded.

This time we have flavored them with orange, but you can also add lemon instead, which gives them an even more traditional flavor if possible. So come on, go buy some paper capsules that tomorrow we have cupcakes for breakfast like before.

How to make orange muffins

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 35 m
  • Elaboration 15 m
  • Cooking 20 m
  • Repose 12 h

We will begin beating in the bowl of a mixer with rods the eggs with the sugar and the orange zest on high speed until they triple the volume.

Mix the sifted flour with the chemical yeast and add to the previous mixture, stirring with a spatula until we see it integrated.

Pour the oil in a fine stream into the mixture and again stir to form a smooth, lump-free mass. Let the dough rest for at least an hour or even overnight in the lower part of the fridge. We preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius with heat just below.

Pour the dough into the paper capsules up to two thirds of its capacity, better with a pastry bag or an ice cream scoop. Sprinkle the surface of the cupcake with sugar. Bake for twenty minutes or until the puncture of a cupcake is cooked.

With what to accompany the orange muffins

Traditional orange muffins are a classic for breakfast. This soft but dense crumb version is perfect for dipping in a good glass of milk. If you do not want to use olive oil, you can change it for sunflower so that the flavor of it is not perceived as much.
