Orange Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

~ Posted on Monday, November 15, 2010 at 9:11 AM ~

This is my 1st attempt of making: ORANGE POPPY SEED MINI MUFFINS.

I baked this on Wednesday 10th Nov. I'm still not confident enough to ditch the premix for muffins attempt (unlike cookies) so, this recipe will still be using premix.


* Less than 5 minutes to mix & fold batter
* 5 minutes to pre-heat the oven
* 15 minutes for baking process

Ingredients / Tool Required:

Orange Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

* Orange Poppy Seed Muffin Mix (250g)
* 1 egg (at room temperature)
* 70ml oil
* 50ml water (at room temperature)
* Measuring spoons
* A big containter to mix ingredients in
* A flexible spatula for mixing and folding
* Mini cupcake casings-depending the casing size, I used 13 pieces
* Kitchen scale
* A small spoon to spoon mixture into cupcake casings
* Baking aluminium foil the size of wire rack

What to Do?

* Place all ingredients into a big container, making a well with the dry ingredients at the outer side while the oil, water and egg are in the well.
* Mix and fold using the flexible spatula.
* Continue mixing and folding until all ingredients are combined.
* Using the small spoon, spoon the mixture to each mini cupcake casing until about 3/4 full.
* Place each mini cupcake casings on top of wire rack which has been lined with baking foil.

Orange Poppy Seed Mini Muffins


* Pre-heat oven at 180℃ (about 5 minutes)
* Place wire rack tray into oven.
* Set oven to 180℃ and bake for 15 minutes

"Yummy and the mini muffins are cute! I will definitely use the mini casings again since it's so much easier (less guilt for eating more hehehe...) with the bite size mini muffins now!"
"Ammm! Ammm!" (usual response...)
"Oooo... the mini muffins are so cute! Taste a bit sweet though"
"Mmm.. delicious but a bit sweet for me. And so much poppy seeds!"

"Ooo so cute and small muffins! Delicious! The poppy seed gives it a nice crunchy feel!" (he even MMS me a picture of himself eating the 2nd mini muffin the next day at work...)
"Delicious but why a bit sour?" (to which I told her it's orange...)

So there you go.... my 1st ORANGE POPPY SEED MINI MUFFINS attempt!

Overall, I'm very happy with this attempt - the way they turned out, nice rounded peak and the very perfect moist, the crust top is just nice, not too hard and not too soft. Just that a few of my guinea pigs commented that it's a bit sweet. I wonder whether I should add more water to make it less sweet (since I don't know how much it is in the premix).... hmm...

These muffins look great Jenny. I will call you the muffin queen! You were saying good luck in Korean right? If so, yes I got it. My Korean is getting worse and worse bc I don't use it as much. But I try my best (= Thanks again for your votes and comments, you're sweet.

Hi Lisa!

Oh wow! Muffin queen?!! Nahhhhh.... please don't call me that! I'm still relying on premix and maybe one day when I'm done relying on premix for muffins and started baking them using the real deal and making awesome yummylicious muffins from the real deal, then I'll gladly accept this title.. hahahah... Smile


Mmmmm! The muffins looks so delicious! I have made lemon poppyseed muffins before, but never orange ones. This is definitely going on my to-do list. Thanks for sharing! Smile
