Healthy Muffins

Yummy Bakes | 3:47 PM |
Just amazed of the reaction of mixing butter, eggs, sugar and flour could produce such beautiful muffins - soft and moist and so addictive.

I made the first batch and I just couldn't stop at one and one portion only yields about nine muffins and I have deposited two at one go, I don't have much left for tomorrow's breakfast.  To satisfy my palate, I whisk another batch of these great muffins where I am free to enjoy/indulge without feeling guilty about sinking my teeth into more than two pieces....

Recipe source: Anncoo Journal

3 egg yolks
30g sugar
35g fresh orange juice
Orange zest from one large orange
70g natural yogurt
80g plain flour
10g cornflour
1/2 tsp baking power
a pinch of salt

3 egg whites
70g sugar


  1. Beat egg yolks and sugar until white at medium speed and add orange juice, natural yogurt and mix well.
  2. Remove bowl from machine, add in sifted flour (plain flour, corn flour, and baking powder) and mix well with a hand whisk, follow by orange zest, mix well again.
  3. Whisk egg whites and sugar until soft peak form.
  4. Fold in 1/4 of egg whites to egg yolk mixture with a rubber spatula until well mixed and fold in remaining egg whites in two batches.
  5. Scoop batter into muffin liners to 3/4 full and place them on a baking tray.
  6. Bake at preheated oven at 170C for about 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  7. Bang the baking tray together with the small cakes on the counter top 2-3 times once they are cooked  as this will prevent the cake shrinkage.  Leave to cool and store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days.
