This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Lauryn of Bella Baker. She picked Dorie’s Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins which are located on page 7 of Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Have a expressed my obsession with the smell of oranges lately because if you didn’t already know it is one of my FAVORITES!! These muffins were such a treat to make and they taste delicious straight from the oven, which is how I enjoyed them for breakfast on Tuesday. I decided to go with GIANT muffins again. I baked them on 350°F for about 30 minutes.
Lately, I have started to lower the oven temperature for things like muffins. I have been doing this because they have a tendency to brown more when baked at a higher temperature because the pan I baked them in is a dark metal pan. Also, since I have been using the GIANT muffin pan they also have to be in the oven longer so better safe then sorry.
These muffins have a bright citrus flavor that goes perfect with the currants. I think dried cranberries would also be a great substitution for the currants. I have a small obsession with the flavor combination of cranberry-orange, which turned into me making a yummy cranberry-orange muffin recipe right after I made these 🙂
