Orange butter muffins

Since there're leftover castor sugar and oranges in the fridge, I decided to bake a simple orange butter cake.

Ingredients:
- 250g castor sugar
-1 big orange
- 170g butter
- 4 eggs
- 50ml milk
- 250g self raising flour
- Colored rice (optional)

Steps:
1. Preheat oven at 170 degree celsius, grate the orange then juice the rest of it.
2. Add in castor sugar, butter and eggs (one at a time) and beat the mixture.
3. Add in milk, juice and flour, continue to beat the mixture completely.
4. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake it for another 45-50 minutes. (Since I have leftover paper cups, I made them as muffins instead)


The end products:

I sprinkled some colored rice on top towards the end of the baking. Yumz~

It's a Friday, hubby and I are going for a movie date tonight (Yea, the long awaited Marvel's the Avengers). Just pray that my baby will 'behave' in the tummy despite the loud volume in the cinema, haha, what to do, his mum and dad are 2 movie buffs ^^
