Orange Muffins….Oh so good!!!!

This recipe I found in a very old missionary cookbook from Greenwood Hills camp. These recipes I usually find are full of ingredients that are very basic and things you probably have on hand. Most of the missionaries that I know never had a Super-Walmart near buy to run out and buy extras, so the ingredients are basic.

I made this recipe not knowing what this would taste like by blending an entire orange skin and all….but let me tell you, this was outstanding and delicious.

Enjoy!!

  • 1 orange (washed, cut in four and take the seeds out)
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • ½ cup of chopped dates, raisins or cranberries (my favorite are the dried cranberries)
  • ½ cup of butter (softened)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups of flour
  • ¾ cups of sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

 

  1. Quarter the orange and cut in half
  2. Place orange, egg , orange juice and butter in a blender and chop and blend together rind and all
  3. Mix in a separate bowl remaining ingredients
  4. Mix all ingredients together and you will find the batter is very lumpy
  5. Stir in fruit or nuts of your choice
  6. Place in a greased muffin tin and bake at 350 for 20 minutes
  7. Let then cool for a bit and they taste oh so good!!!
