Made these orange mini cupcakes for teatime. This has got to be the simplest and quickest recipe ever! All you have to do is dump everything into a blender (or a food processor - I didn't have one), blend, pour and send them into the oven - all within a few minutes! :P You can decorate them with some icing/frosting/cream <I was lazy. Oops, sshhh...>,  or simply add a bit of orange peels for some extra chewy texture like what I did :D 

These orange mini cupcakes are so soft, moist and delicious!!

Ingredients:

(Makes 9 mini muffins)

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 60g unsalted butter, softened
  • 50g brown sugar (Lesser if your orange is very sweet)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice, sifted
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • Orange peel, thinly sliced (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a mini muffin tray with paper cups.
  2. Put all ingredients (except orange peel, if you are adding. Stir them in right before pouring the mixture into paper cups) into a blender or food processor and blend til the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into the paper cups til about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 mins, or til golden and the skewer comes out clean when tested, rotating the tin once during cooking.
  4. Allow to cool for 5 mins in the tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

*Note: I didn't manage to let them cool completely coz LO kept saying, "Eat cake! I want to eat cake!", and I felt that they are best eaten warm from the oven! Haha!! Will definitely make them again :D
