Baking Days // blood orange muffins
I have a confession to make: I'm a stress-eater. Whenever I feel overwhelmed I check the kitchen for anything edible. My favorite kind of stress-relievers? Homemade food. Since baking is kind of my thing I usually make a quick cake or oatmeal cookies. Just half an hour in the kitchen works wonders. So yesterday I made couple of quick blood orange muffins.
Fun fact: it was the first time buying/touching/eating a blood orange. Crazy, right? I've had blood orange juice once or twice but I don't remember it to be special; but these oranges? Oh my, I think I'm addicted! Each and every one looks different on the inside. And they're awesome for food photography purposes. I always love trying new fruits and vegetables :)
The recipe I used (from here) is very easy and quick; you just need two mixing bowls and a couple of ingredients - no fancy kitchen appliances!
These colors... yumm!
Simply mix all the dry ingredients together; in a separate bowl, mix the liquids together and combine everything. Mix with a spoon...
... pour the batter into muffin cups...
... and enjoy :)
So what kind of stress relievers work for you?
