Orange Muffins Recipes with Witch Cream

To prepare these Orange Muffins Recipe, I wanted to replace a part of the wheat flour with almond flour to lighten them up a bit and to keep them moist. Even if they are not cupcakes, I wanted to make them even more delicious by garnishing them with a beautiful orange Chantilly cream and Crema Strega.

Crema Strega is a Strega liqueur cream, precisely, a liqueur with an intense aroma made from spices and aromatic herbs including cinnamon, mint, fennel, juniper and many others, 70 to be exact. Its yellow colour, on the other hand, owes it to saffron. Finally, I decorated them with orange slices that I dried in the oven with the convection oven function for a couple of hours at 75/80 ° C.

In the end, the result was just what I hoped for, namely muffins, moist, light and delicious, with a delicious orange flavour enhanced by spices and a fresh and aromatic Chantilly cream that completes and enhances everything.
