Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 oz melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

You will also need

  • 1 muffin pan
  • a sifter

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together. Leave apart. In a medium bowl beat together butter and sugar on medium-high speed until creamy, 1-2 minutes. Reduce speed and add the egg until integrated.
  • Add orange zest, half the flour mixture and half the orange juice, beat until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as flour will stick to it. Add the remaining flour mixture and orange juice, beat for a few seconds. With a spatula scrape down the sides of the bowl again. Integrate candied fruit with the mix.
