This is a very sweet, delicious muffin with a nice, orange aroma which you can eat while telling yourself that you’re getting your dark, leafy greens in.
Kale is usually the sweetest at this time of the year and it likes the cold weather very much so don’t be afraid to buy it and make something delicious – like these muffins.
Just remember to remove the thick, hard stems of the kale because they tend to stay that hard and that’s not that nice in muffins.
1/2 cup applesauce (can be replaced with oil)
1/4 cup rapeseed oil
1/2 cup kale, finely chopped
zest of 1 orange
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
In a bowl mix eggs, applesauce, oil, orange zest, sugar and milk until combined and smooth.
It’s ok if not all of the sugar has dissolved.
Add flour mixed with baking powder and salt and mix just to combine.
Add kale and fold it into the mixture.
Fill 12 muffin cases and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Check with a cocktail stick.
