Calling all citrus lovers, the fresh squeeze is here
If you’re a lover of refreshing, zing and light flavours this is definitely a recipe to try. With a total of 6 ingredients, this is super easy to make – no sifting required, no special utensils, a muffin tray, a mixing bowl, grater, knife and spoon and you’re set!
I’ve seen some recipes that call for a large number of egg whites, other’s with multiple cups of icing sugar – this has neither, and frankly doesn’t need it.
The optional extra is a thin slice of orange to the side, it’s mostly cosmetic but does add a little extra punch as you enjoy one of these yummy morsels.
I haven’t tried this recipe using purchased orange juice, my recommendation is to have a big bowl of fresh oranges – they’re inexpensive to buy (most of the time) and if you don’t get around to using them all then you’ve got fresh squeezed OJ go with breakfast!
