Orange Muffins

Super simple and super tasty recipe!

2 sticks butter, softened
1 C sugarDSC01313
2 eggs
2 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 C buttermilk
2 oranges, zested and juiced
1 C lightly packed brown sugar

Mix together baking soda and buttermilk and set aside.DSC01308
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add in eggs and mix well.
Add in flour and mix well.
Add in buttermilk mixture and orange zest, mix until well combined.

Combine brown sugar with juice DSC01316from oranges (about ½ C orange juice*)

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes. I left the mini muffins in for 12 minutes, full size muffins in for 15 minutes. The original recipe says it yields 3 dozen mini muffins, but I got a bit more than that.

While the muffins are still in the tin, drizzle the DSC01319brown sugar/orange juice glaze over the muffins, then remove muffins to wire cooling rack to cool completely. The will be sticky and delicious.

*For variations, try adding pineapple juice to the brown sugar, or 1/2 tsp lemon extract to the muffin batter. Your choice!
