Happy Sssssnake Year 2013 - Have an Orangey Muffin♡

I realised it had been almost 3 weeks since my last bake in January. Nope, I wasn't preparing for the Lunar New Year. My helper had gone back for a 2 weeks vacation and will only be back after tomorrow. So past weeks were more of a "maid" myself, along with the help of my hubby to look after the 3 little monsters and our housechores... hahaha....
How about yours? Had you been busy preparing for the Snake Year too?
 I finally found some time to bake yesterday night after I got home. I was just dying to bake something and this recipe, I had KIV for quite awhile as I did not have oranges at home then. Look at the soft, fluffy texture of these Fresh Orange Muffins. These muffins are not tobe missed!
 Using fresh orange zest, orange flesh & orange juice had made these muffins a very refreshing and delightful taste. In another words, could I just say they tasted like fresh juicy oranges too?
Using the orange flesh, orange zest and sugar, cook on a low heat, keeps the orange flesh in its moist, juicy texture. Filling the orange flesh in between the batter and placing some on top of the batter.
 There, giving me its best color, excellent taste of these no frills, easy baked Orange Muffins.
If you love oranges, I'm sure you will find great pleasures making these muffins... With the moist orange flesh & zest... It's just like eating an orange as it is...♡

 Here, I wish everyone to have a prosperous, healthy & wealthy year ahead!
Happy Happy Ssssssnake Year!!!!
