Fragrant mandarin orange muffins will cheer you up and remind you of the long-awaited winter holidays. Delicate airy muffins with citrus and vanilla notes are a great addition to the New Year’s table.
If you put them in a beautiful package and tie them with a ribbon, you get an original and pleasant gift for friends and relatives. And if you bake the dough in a round shape, divide it into two or three cakes, grease with your favorite cream – there will be a fragrant birthday cake!
The dessert is prepared from available products, and even a novice cook can handle a simple recipe.
The oven should be heated to 180 degrees. Bake the muffins until they are browned, and you can check the readiness with a toothpick. If there is no dough left on the toothpick when piercing the products, then the cupcakes are baked.
Baking can be left to cool in the forms, or you can immediately lay it out, for example, on a board.
The final chord is to sprinkle the finished cupcakes with powdered sugar or other powder.
You can also prepare mandarin muffins in a different way, without rubbing the pulp of the fruit with a blender. If you cut the mandarin into rings, put the mugs on the bottom of the molds, and then put the dough on top, you get a cake with mandarin filling.
Another baking option is interesting: cook one large cupcake in a multicooker or oven, and then cut it into portions.
And you can also use not mandarines, but oranges as a fragrant fruit base.
