Strawberry Buttercream Frosting

White Chocolate & Orange Muffins

A little different kind of muffin that takes flour and polenta or yellow corn meal.  Great for breakfast or a quick snack.  This is a Nigella Lawson recipe.  Yield:  12 regular sized muffins

  • 1-2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup polenta or yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips
  • 6 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 orange, zest and juiced

Preheat oven to 400°.
Line muffin tin with muffin/cupcake papers.  
Measure the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and sugar in a bowl.  Stir in the chocolate chips.
In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, vegetable oil, milk , zest and juice of the orange.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until incorporated.
Pour into the muffin pan -- I use a standard ice cream scoop for this.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean.
Let stand for 5 minutes on a wire rack.
