Christmas Muffins

On my usual blog hop, I stumbled upon Sweet And Simple Bakes on this Christmas Bake Event. Currently in the fever of baking, I jumped at the chance to try out a new recipe and participate in a bake event!

Effectively, this is only the 3rd time I make muffins since I own myself a mixer. I ask for your leniency on this!

Not long ago at the bookstore, I just picked up Nigella’s Christmas Book and wowed at the recipes within. To much delight, I am able to now try one of those for this event. The best thing is there’s a get-together tonight so I can bring a bunch of this to share.

Turns out this recipe is extremely easy to follow, especially for a newbie like me – I did not mess it up. The aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon filled the place when the muffins were baking, bliss! This recipe will definitely be kept for coming Christmas years.

I didn’t like grating orange zest though; I used a fruit peeler so that was the only step that took me some time. *I have a fear of peeling my skin off!!*

Thank you Sweet & Simple Bakes for organizing this!

Happy 2009 to all and be blessed in the coming year~

Warm love,
