Tangerine Muffins

Tangerine Muffins


Tangerines may not be the first fruit to come to mind when baking, but just like their fellow citrus fruits (think lemons, limes, and oranges, any of which could be substituted here), they make tart additions to a variety of sweets, including these muffins. The zest and juice are mixed into the otherwise basic batter that's given depth from brown sugar (rather than white sugar) and couldn't be easier to pull off.


200 grams butter
130 grams brown sugar
3 eggs
200 grams all-purpose flour
1 tangerine (juice and zest)


1Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2Whisk butter with sugar until it's creamy, then add the eggs 1 by 1, whisking between each addition.
3Add tangerine juice and zest, and mix well.
4Add the flour, mix well to combine.
5Pour the batter in greased muffin pans and bake for 30 minutes.
