As you will see, this recipe is very easy to make and the muffins are very fluffy, try them yourself!!!!!


  • 4 eggs
  • 200 gr sugar
  • 200 ml oil
  • 220 gr flour
  • Grated zest of one orange
  • Juice of half an orange
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 sachet of royal baking powder
  • Sugar for sprinkling

* The peel of the oranges from can be perfectly used since it does not have any further chemical treatment.


Preheat the oven to 250º.

In a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until frothy.

Then add the oil, juice and orange zest. Mix again.

Sift the flour together with the yeast and add it to the previous mixture. We also add the salt. Mix well and keep in the refrigerator for half an hour (it's okay if we have it a little longer) so that the dough rises better during baking.

Place the muffin capsules in a multiple mold, in flan trays or wherever we are used to and fill with the dough up to 2/3 of its capacity, sprinkle with sugar and bake at 200º until the muffins are golden brown. Then let the muffins cool.

Now enjoy these delicious orange muffins!
