Vegan Orange Mixed berries Muffins – Fire up your Oven, Day 23

We are in the last week of our Mega Marathon Fire Up Your Oven. Can’t believe we have posted month-long bakes. If you are following this marathon, then you might be aware that i had a sub-theme every week. This week i will be posting orange muffins. Oh yes, for all days, you might be thinking i have gone mad? No, god’s grace i m still sane. wonder how many different recipes are there to get a delicious orange muffin. Yes i will be giving you 4-different recipes this week.

In that order, today i give you a mixed berries vegan orange muffins. The recipe is from Madhuram’s Eggless baking. The recipe uses Flaxseed meal as Egg-replacement and gives 12 regular muffins. I used my 6-cup muffin pan and my small bundt pan for this recipe. I filled up more than the required amount of batter in each cup, so my muffins had  a dome and looked like a mushroom. But, neverthless the taste was very good, with the orange zest and the mixed berries in every bite, it was a tasty riot in the mouth,
