WHOLE ORANGE POPPYSEED ZOMTUFFINS

These use the entire orange through the mixture, so they are beautifully fragrant and dense. I love orange poppyseed cakes so the zest and some juice just isn't enough for me! I love that you get little bits of zippy zest through this and it is so dense and soft in texture.

Whole Orange Poppyseed ZOMTUFFINS

Ingredients

2 whole oranges
1 cinnamon stick
2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup natural yoghurt
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp baking powder
75 g unsalted butter
1/4 cup poppyseeds

Method
Boil the whole oranges for 1 hour with the cinnamon stick. Allow to cool and blend through a processor or blender until smooth.


Combine the flour, baking soda, bicarb and poppyseeds in a bowl.


Beat butter & sugar together, combine yoghurt & oranges through. Add all the dry ingredients and mix through.


Spoon mixture into baking paper cups about 3/4 full (this cake is dense and doesn't rise that much) and bake between 15-20mins on a medium heat.

These look scrumptious. I would never have thought to use a whole orange in any recipe!
So nice to see that you use wholemeal flower. This recipe: bookmarked.

Thanks Erica, be sure to let me know when you try the recipe out. Wholemeal flour is great, although not if you want something light and fluffy.

Yum!
Thanks for sharing :)

these look yummy, but wait... you really toss the whole boiled oranges into the blender? that's a new one for me.

Zoe said...

Justin - YES! The whole orange! Because you have cooked it it goes all soft and tender; you could use just one orange too for a less intense flavour. Try it!
(I've add you to my drool list and am following your blog, looks great!)

i was wondering.. where do you get your cupcake cases from? ive been dying to get them but have not seen them anywhere..

Hi Betty, it took me a while to find these cupcake papers too! I bought them online here: http://www.cakedeco.com.au/product.asp?productID=3043
These one are Wilton and called 'Nut & Party cups' so you could also try searching that. Good luck!

Hi Zoe,

Can I add dates syrup or agave in replacement to sugar? If I could do that what would be the best measurement for it. Thank you :)

Hi Bavani, I'm not sure, you would have to experiment! It's always a bit touch and go when substituting sugar, but here is a recipe for Carrot cupcakes with date syrup that may help you work out how to modify the recipe - http://www.organicsareforeveryone.com/carrot-cupcakes-gluten-free/
