Good for dinner with poultry or pork dishes,or make them for breakfast and drizzle with orange glaze.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These muffins are very tender and moist with a light orange flavor. They're terrific eaten plain or served warm with a dab of real butter (my favorite). My husband ate three of them right out of the oven!

TIP: I used bread flour that was well sifted. Also, we had great success glazing the muffins twice - first while hot (as the recipe calls for), and then again after the muffins have cooled a bit. Looking for even more orange flavor? Add 1/4 teaspoon of orange oil to the glaze. YUM! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
