Orange and poppy seeds muffins with a crumble
It won’t be the first time I’m posting an orange muffin recipe (please visit here and there), but it’s just another nice version with refreshing buttermilk and a crunchy crumble which will make you ask for more.
I have adapted the recipe from here. It’s actually very common to add buttermilk to good muffins recipes but while reading that post It suddenly reminded me that I had some crumble left in the freezer since I always make apple crumble for Mr. Husband (well it’s apple season).
Although I like baking I’m not a big fan of sweets so I’ve cut on the sweetness of the original recipe. I also added the orange pulp which gives a moist texture, natural sweetness and certainly more orangy taste. I do like this orange muffin recipe and I hope you enjoy it too. It’s always nice when it’s served freshly baked.
