Banana Orange Muffins

The original recipe [Banana Orange Walnut Muffins] is from Florence of  Do What I Like.  Since I didn't have enough walnuts, I substitute the walnuts with some chopped candied orange peel  [see recipe here] which I made earlier.

When this muffin was out of the oven, I quickly tried one.  It wasn't what I expected and nothing special.  My first thought is not to share this recipe.  I kept them in airtight container and have them for breakfast the next day.  Surprisingly, they were so much better.  So I decided to share the recipe here.
The muffins are soft and moist even on the next day.  It is even more flavourful than just out of the oven.  The paper cases can be easily removed when completely cooled.

I have never tried a banana and orange combination but it does sound interesting to me. The muffins look soft and moist.

Hi Kimmy,
Looks like this is one of those recipes that the flavours improves if rested overnight.
It looks really moist and great for tea-time snack.

Hi Lite Home Bake, with orange added, lemon juice is not required.

Hi Joyce, it was a good thing I kept it overnight.

Hi Kimmy! Thumbs Up for your muffins! I still have some candied orange peel leftover and I think I shall use it for muffins too.

Kimmy said...

Hi Aunty Young, banana is sweet and goes well with a little citrus flavour. The Mee Java recipes are in the 'Noodles' category.

Hi Phong Hong, try it but remember the flavours are better after resting.
