Millet Muffins

Lately I have become a fan of all things millet. Since discovering this grain, I have used it to make pilaf, salad, and my most recent dabbling is with muffins. I came across this recipe on 101 Cookbooks, and as soon as I saw it I had to make it. With pen in hand I wrote down the recipe and got right over to the kitchen. Some changes had to be made because I didn’t want to run to the store to buy pastry flour or a lemon, so I used what I had. An orange in place of lemon and whole wheat and all-purpose flour in place of pastry. And I have to say not bad for those switches.

These muffins are reminiscent of cornbread. The whole wheat flour and millet give them a mealy texture. The orange is clearly visible, and the yogurt gives these muffins a fluff. Not even close to being dense, these muffins should be on the top of everyone’s to-do list.

I’m not going to post the recipe here because I think that Heidi at does such a beautiful job writing and taking photographs. So if you want the recipe then head over there. And add orange. They’re awesome with orange.
