A week of baking - orange breakfast muffins

These are real muffins. Not cake but muffins. They are super light, deliciously crumbly and not too sweet, which is a good excuse to add a dollop of jam or a drizzle of honey. Perfect served with fresh coffee or a cup of earl grey tea at breakfast time.

Nigellas orange breakfast muffins
75g unsalted butter melted
250g SR flour
25 g ground almonds
1/2 tsp bi carb soda
1 tsp baking powder
75g caster sugar
zest of 1 orange
100ml fresh squeezed orange juice
100ml milk
1 egg

Combine dry ingredients and zest in a large bowl.
Whisk together juice milk and egg and then butter.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix lightly with a fork. Do not overwork the mixture, it should be lumpy.
Divide into mix into 12 muffin cases.
Bake for 20 minutes at 200 degrees c

They taste the best when they are still hot from the oven. Yum yum.

Thanks Ingrid, I just made some of these, but I didn't have enough mixture for 12 - I've made 8 - does that sound right? I've used the paper cups, and they are a little high. They'll be out in 20 mins, so I'll let you know how they go!
