Course: Breakfast
Servings: 12
  • 1 large orange grated zest and juiced
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 stick (or 113 grams) unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • pearl sugar or decorating sugar (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 205-degree C (400-degree F). Grease the 12-muffin pan or put some paper muffin cups. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar and the orange zest. Rub them together with your fingers until the fragrance of the orange has been released. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk them all together to combine.

  3. Pour the orange juice into a measuring cup. Add enough buttermilk in the same measuring cup to measure 1 cup.  

  4. In a slightly smaller bowl, pour the orange juice and buttermilk. Add the eggs, honey and melted butter. Whisk them all together to combine.

  5. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Mix gently with a rubber spatula. Add the blueberries and continue mixing, just enough to combine. The batter will be lumpy.

  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin.

  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  8. Once cooked, let cool for 5 to 10 minutes, and then start removing each muffin from the tin.
