Orange Poppy Seeds Muffins

These delicious gluten free muffins have the perfect flavour combination that will never be outdated.

These orange poppy seed muffins are the perfect treat to pair with afternoon tea. Have it by yourself, with friends, with family, it is a dessert that everyone will enjoy!

These muffins are by far one of my easiest dessert recipes, call it my "one bowl recipe." Simply whisk together all the ingredients and your are left with super soft and fluffy muffins.

For these muffins, I chose Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour. This particular flour already contains xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is required in gluten free baking because it provides the elasticity and acts as a binding agent for the flour, more importantly it is responsible for holding onto moisture, which is exactly what gluten free flour often lacks. Find yourself a gluten free flour blend that has xanthan gum already added, but if it doesn't, it's not the end of the world! Simply buy xanthan gum separately from your local supermarket and add about 1/4 tsp to your recipe.
