Orange Sunshine Muffins


10 mins


20 mins






  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • ½ cup (75g) wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 90g light butter, chilled, chopped
  • ¾ cup (165g) caster sugar
  • 1 tbs finely grated orange rind
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
  • ¼ cup (60ml) orange juice
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg, lightly whisked
  • 1 tbs finely grated orange rind
  • Orange wedges, to serve (optional)
  • Orange Icing

    • ½ cup (80g) icing sugar mixture
    • 1 tbs orange juice


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12-hole, ⅓-cup (80ml) muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Place combined flour in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and orange rind. Make a well in the centre.
  3. Add the buttermilk, orange juice and egg. Stir until just combined (don’t overmix).
  4. Divide mixture evenly among paper cases. Bake for 25 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  5. To make the orange icing, if using, place icing sugar in a bowl. Stir in enough orange juice to make a runny paste. Top muffins with orange wedges, if desired, and drizzle with icing.
