Dhahran Theatre Group Cookbook, 1993


1/2 Cup butter or margarine
1/2 Cup honey
2 Eggs
1 Medium orange, grated (put the quartered orange in a food processor)
1/2 Cup plain yogurt
1/2 Cup low fat milk
2 Cups whole wheat flour
1/2 Cup wheat germ
2 Teaspoons baking powder 1 Teaspoon baking soda 1 Cup raisins
1/2 Cup chopped walnuts


Beat together butter, honey and eggs until mixture is thoroughly blended. Beat in orange, yogurt and milk until blended. Mix together the dry ingredients and add all at once, beating until dry ingredients are just moist. Do not overbeat.

Divide batter between 12 paper-lined muffin cups and bake at 350? F. for about 30 minutes, or until a cake tester, inserted in the center of a muffin, comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and continue cooling on a rack.

Note: These make large muffins so you can divide the batter into 18 cups (reduce the baking time a few minutes). If the cast is large, double this recipe. These muffins do not last long, especially if the set construction crew is working.
