It's getting colder, the leaves turn yellow and red and you probably crave something sweet and warm. We would like to present you the pancake out of the stove (a stovecake?). Instead of muffin wrappers we used empty orange peel and used some homemade cinnamon and brown sugar butter as a topping. Yummy! Perfect for those who don't want to throw away the orange peel or too lazy to clean a pan. It is a very easy recipe and makes any table look decorated on each autumn/Halloween party without a lot of effort.  And yes, you can use that same batter for regular pancakes - we just wanted to show you that pancake batter can be used outside of an old boring pan.

For the topping:
100g soft butter
2 teaspoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Utensils: small bowl and a fork

At first you can smash the butter (that you already took out of the fridge a long time ago) with a fork in a small bowl and add the other two ingredients. Mix it until it is well combined and smells like cinnamon. Now you can make a ball out of it or spread it in a little form and put it in the fridge so it can harden.

For (approx. 12) muffins:
7 oranges (organic)
230g flour
4 eggs
4g baking powder
4g baking soda
50ml oil
50g sugar
120ml butter milk

Utensils: two small bowls, one big bowl, whisk, grater, muffin tin (optional) , black permanent marker (optional)

  1. At first heat up the oven up to 160 degrees Celsius. Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder in the small bowl and set aside.
  2. Separate the eggs and put the egg white in the big bowl and the egg yolk in the empty small bowl.
  3. Now you can prepare the oranges. Carefully cut 6 of them in half and press the juice out of it. Don´t throw away the peel and the pulp! Put 4 teaspoons of the juice and 2 teaspoons of the pulp in the small bowl with the egg yolk and drink the rest (It is very healthy!). 
  4. After that, make sure you get the rest of the pulp out of the orange shells. Mix the egg yolk with the orange juice and pulp with 50ml oil.
  5. Beat the egg white in the big bowl until it gets a little bit frothy. Add the butter milk to the egg white and beat it again. At this point you should pour the egg yolk mixture into the big bowl.
  6. Grab the last organic orange and a grater and some orange zest (It also goes into the big bowl). That's why they have to be organic! Otherwise you will eat only some chemicals.
  7. Pour the flour mixture in the big bowl and gave it a whisk. Don´t mix it too long. If you can still see some flour crumbs it is perfectly OK. Put the batch in the fridge and let it rest for about 20 minutes. That is enough time to make the dishes, go to the toilet and call your granny (maybe invite her over for some tea and muffins).
  8. Preheat the oven. Now that the batter is ready, put the orange peel in the muffin tin. If you don't have a muffin tin you can also put it on the oven rack. Fill the peel about 3/4 with the batter and put it in the hot oven for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile your kitchen will be smelling delicious! Take the muffins out.
  9. Put some of that cinnamon butter on top and let it melt. If you want, you can paint some Halloween pumpkin faces on the shell like we did. Enjoy your cozy autumn muffins and prepare for our next Halloween recipe (it will be spooky and bloody!)
