Chocolatechip Orange Muffins.


Fall has arrived......

Oranges are my favorite this season...

I love oranges....I know you love them too....

I love orange juice in cakes........check out my favorite orange cake recipe here


These muffins are soft, light, and have two of my favorite things.......orange and chocolate chips....WOW!
They are not dense like cappuccino muffins....they are airy and pillow like.....I think the buttermilk and the orange juice gave that soft texture to the muffins.

Plus these muffins can be easy whipped up....


If you do not have buttermilk please don't think of not baking these oh! so! feather light muffins....you can make buttermilk substitute right in your kitchen and get along with your baking.

*Buttermilk substitute to make 1 cup of buttermilk: In your measuring cup pour 1 tbsp lemon juice or 1 tbsp white vinegar and then add low fat milk ( if you are calorie conscious) to fill the cup. Let it stand for 5 min to curdle.....that's it buttermilk is ready to add to your cakes, cupcakes, muffins......


Recipe inspiration: Cooklikemom.
I reduced the quantity of baking powder.
# 12 muffins with this recipe. 
#Add orange juice and buttermilk accordingly.
Ingredients:
Flour: 280 gm.
Sugar: 100 gm.
Baking powder: 1 tsp.
Baking soda: 1/2 tsp.
Egg: 1.
Oil: 80 ml.
Orange juice: 100 ml.
Buttermilk: 200 ml, refer substitute *.
Chocolate chips: 1/2 cup.
Orange peel: 80 gm, chopped. (optional, I did not use them).
Salt: A big fat pinch.

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Line a muffin tray with paper liners.
2. Sieve flour,  BP, BS, and salt and keep aside. Add orange peel to it if you are using.
3. In a separate bowl beat egg with a whisk till light and fluffy, whisk in sugar, oil, orange juice, and the buttermilk and mix well (at this stage you can see the mix becoming a little frothy).
4. Add the sieved flour slowly into the buttermilk mixture and fold gently. Do not over mix.. Gently fold in the chocolate chips. 
5. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full. I sprinkled some choc chips on top of the batter too.....ya you heard me right I am a chocoholic.


6. Bake for 20 to 23 min.....it took just 18 min in my oven.

Fresh out of the oven.

Serve.

Peel off the liners.

....and sink into them.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …
