Flavorful Tsoureki Muffins



Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a muffin pan. 

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. (Flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, mastiha, cardamom, and orange zest.) 

In a medium pot, add the milk, butter, and mahlepi. Whisk to combine over medium heat. Remove from heat, and let cool. 

Add the egg, vanilla, and orange juice to the milk mixture and combine. (I use my hands to mix the dough together.) 

Fill the muffin pan. You should be able to get 12 muffins out of this recipe, if not more. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on wired rack before you ice the muffins.



In a medium bowl, place the nutella in a bowl and heat for 20 seconds. 

Whisk in the almond milk, and powdered sugar. 

Drizzle the nutella icing over the top of the tsoureki muffins.
