Pumpkin Orange Muffins

Pumpkin is such an interesting vegetable that, apart from being sweet, it has no specific flavor. However, it has a taste when you do it. I combined pumpkins with orange and lemon, which turned out to be a really interesting flavor combination in muffins. In addition, I stuffed the cream with a strong hint of lemon to enrich the taste even more.

How to choose the best ingredients for Pumpkin Orange Muffins

Eggs: choose fresh eggs, large if you have smaller eggs add one more for size M and two more for size S.

Cane sugar: cane sugar is not essential, but it adds a distinctive color and aroma to muffins. If you have it, use it, but you can replace it with another sugar.

Oil: oil I use rapeseed oil for baking in cooking, but this dough can be sunflower oil, grape seed oil, or any other oil you have.

Orange juice: orange juice is best pressed. The juice then has more flavor. If you will buy one, choose the one with no added sugar or preservatives.

Pumpkin: pumpkin choose fresh, canned mousse is not suitable.

Flour: flour will be good for any of this all-purpose as well. It is important to sift it before adding it to the dough.

Lemon extract: choose the natural lemon flavor.

Tips and tricks

  • Sift the make before adding it to the dough. It makes it fluffier and makes the muffins even more fluffy.
  • We stuff the muffins on the same day, but they must be very cold so that the butter in the frosting does not melt. You can do a muffin test for this. Put a wooden stick inside, hold it for 2 minutes and remove. When it is warm, you still have to wait. Do the next test in a different place or a different muffin.
  • Feel the portions you want to fill when you stuff the muffins with a confectionery sleeve. I count to two and press on my hands with the same force. You can also inflate the muffin in several places for more cream.
