These muffins are extremely delicate, when i was baking them i wasn’t too sure how they would come out. This is because after you add yogurt to a muffin or a cake recipe it is not easy to manage and this was the first time when i experimented with yogurt for my muffin recipe. The baking time was longer, these muffins took almost an hour to bake, but boy oh boy, the muffins came out super duper. The sesame was crispy and the cake part was moist and soft. So all i am saying is the time and effort was all worth, and as you guys know i am no master baker, i experimented and i did well so i urge you guys to do the same in your kitchen. Right now you can just follow my recipe and try making these muffins, choose your ingredients too, if you wanna add something else instead of sesame seeds then go ahead, add chia or choco chips. But make sure you measure everything before you make the batter, because this is very important.
Prep Time: Under 10 Mins
Baking Time: 50 mins-1 hour
1 cup almond meal
½ cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup white sesame seeds
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup fresh orange juice
½ cup honey
2 tbsp brown sugar
¾ cup curd
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp orange essence
½ cup coconut oil
In a large mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together.
Now fold the ingredients from the wet bowl into the dry.
Mix everything very well.
In a muffin tray, place the paper muffin cups and pour the batter. Do not fill the cups completely with the batter as the batter will rise and it might overflow so fill the cups 80% with the batter and no more.
In a preheated oven, bake the muffins at 180C for 50 minutes to an hour. I placed the tray on the bottom shelf of the oven. Mine took an hour to bake perfectly.
After 45 minutes, you can take the muffin tray from the bottom shelf and place on top, so that the crust of muffins brown a little. ( I placed mine for 5 minutes on the top shelf).
Check after 50 minutes, use the toothpick to check, if the toothpick comes out clean then your muffins are done. If not then bake for a few minutes more.
After you take the muffins out, do not take them off the muffin tray, let the muffins cool down for 30 minutes.
After the muffins have cooled down properly, apply your favourite glaze and eat.
I smeared mine with peach marmalade and icing sugar.
