The 1st time I baked these fresh orange muffins recipe was almost 5 years ago. It was during my initial days of food photography and blogging. It was when my older one was 3 years old and I had to send some snacks to his school. The kids loved it and after that when I put it on the blog, it surprisingly became one of the top recipes and received good reviews.
Times have changed, from a novice blogger to a professional food photographer, the journey has been quite long and I hope it continues.
Fresh Fruits in Baking:
It is not every day that you hear about banana cake, so today let me introduce you to this ultra-moist, melt in mouth super delicious banana cake. It’s excellent with cream cheese frosting. The cake pic is something which I am not proud of and I understand, a picture says a thousand words. The picture was from my initial days of blogging. I dread looking at some of the initial pics I posted.
Spicy guacamole is something I updated recently and I am planning to update my old posts as and when I get time.
This is a great fall baking recipe as well as for Halloween. You can use the glaze to make a web with or without the addition of black color.
These orange muffins have a slightly crisp top while the inside is super moist.
