Orange Muffins Without Butter

This recipe is from Anncoo Journal which I had bookmarked since it was posted in 2012 but never get down to do until now.
Lovely, soft and spongy muffin which I never expected to be so nice with the orange flavour, moreover it is butter-less.  This is really a keeper.  Thanks Ann for sharing this wonderful muffin recipe which I wouldn't mind baking again and again.  I didn't read the recipe well until after baking.  Step 7 was done before baking.  Luckily, they are still okay.
[makes 12 muffins]
3 egg yolks
30 gm castor sugar
35 ml fresh orange juice
Zest of 1 orange
70 ml plain yoghurt
80 ml plain flour
10 gm corn flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
3 egg whites
70 gm sugar [I used 50 gm]
  1. Beat egg yolks and sugar until white.  Drizzle in orange juice and natural yoghurt.  Continue to beat until well mixed.
  2. Add in sifted dry ingredients and orange zest.  Mix well again and set aside.
  3. Whisk egg whites and sugar until stiff peak formed.
  4. Fold 1/4 of egg white into egg yolk mixture with a spatula and mix well. Then fold in the remaining egg white in 2 batches.
  5. Scoop batter into muffin tray lined with paper cases until 3/4 full.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer when inserted comes out clean.
  7. Notes - Bang the baking tray together with the small cakes on the counter top 2-3 times once they are cooked, as this will prevent the cakes from shrinking.   Leave to cool and store them in an airtight container in room temperature for 2-3 days.  I gave several to my mom, she kept in the fridge for about a week, they were still soft and good.

wow, a cup cake without butter but with yoghurt. Something that I must try as well. Thanks for sharing, Kimmy!

Wow, Kimmy! I really like this! I must try it too because the muffins look so soft and spongy like sponge cake.

this sounds like a healthy treat especially with the addition of yogurt.. am sure this is very soft!

Kimmy said...

Hi Jozelyn, I suppose this is a healthy cupcake. I'll reduce the sugar a little as I find it a bit too sweet for me.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, you will love it. It's really light and I discovered that it keeps well for over a week in the fridge.

Kimmy said...

Hi Victoria Bakes, you are right. These should look more tempting if I have use lovelier paper cup cases.

This should be a good recipe for those vegan.

Kimmy said...

Hi Edith, it's good for the health conscious too. Can still reduce the sugar.
