Orange muffins

These orange muffins are some of my favorites. Crisp edges and so light! they pair well with a cup of coffee too. As I mentioned before, muffins are so easy to make, with just a few ingredients and in less than an hour you can enjoy them. So let´s start making these amazing muffins!

Although citrus season is almost over, we have one tree still full of fruit. They are not very sweet, but perfect for baking cakes, breads and muffins.

Whenever we have a lot of oranges, I get the zest of as many as I can get and then freeze it for later use.
