Blood Orange sponge cupcakes

Blood Oranges are very juicy and the ones I bought tastes no difference to a normal orange.
My daughter wasn't too keen on the look of it and now refuse to eat it.
 I decide to make orange sponge cupcakes hoping the kids will still eat it in cake form haha...
And yes they did, I think I have to bake with more fruits as my son still refuse to eat any fruits.

This sponge cupcake is very soft and as the egg batter is whisked to ribbon stage, the stabilised egg batter have made this cake really spongy and springs back when I pressed it.

Here is a video of how spongy the sponge cake is.

I only have a 6 hole muffin tin so I managed to get 6 large cupcakes and 3 small square chiffon cup cases with this recipe.
If you have a 12 hole muffin tin then you can get 9 cupcakes out of it.
