Orange & Prune Muffins.... mmmmmm!


I had a craving for something sweet today!  I thought it would be fun for Kahu and I to do some baking so we made these.  Oh they are so yummy I am sure that Mr Naked Baby will be having a few when he gets home... I wonder if this means I will get a shoulder rub tonight?

  • 1 orange
  • 1 large egg (We love free range ones!)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (this is optional)
  • 1/2 cup of dried chopped prunes
  • 125g Butter
  • 1/2 cup of plain yoghurt (I added some honey)
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 200
Grate rind into blender, take off bitter white orange pith, then roughly chop the rest of the orange.
Add orange flesh, egg and sugar into the blender (or food processor) adn mix for approx 2 mins, until smooth.  Add prunes, butter, yoghurt and milk, pulse a few times.
Pour mixture into a bowl, sift flour, baking soda and baking powder and combine, mixing well.
Bake for 15-18 mins until golden brown adn well cooked, Cool in tin before serving.

*can substitute prunes for sultanas or the like
