Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice Muffins

Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice Muffins

You will need:
Dry Ingredients:
~2 cups All-purpose flour
~1 cup sugar (save 1/3 cup aside for your glaze)
~1-1/2 Tblsp Baking Powder
~1/3 tsp salt
Wet Ingredients:
~1 cube or 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (others use oil, I prefer butter)
Now here is where you have some choices!
My favorite & what I use, now, is:
~1 container of honey or blood orange yogurt & 2 Tblsp of sour cream.
(others have used 1 full cup of sour cream or 1 full cup of greek yogurt plain..
The first time I made it, I didn't have any of the above ingredients and I used 2 Tblsp of cream cheese, filling the rest of the cup with buttermilk, It was wonderful!) ~1-1/2 Large eggs, (if you've never done this, simply whisk you first egg and add it to wet mixture, do the same with the 2nd, only pour half of it out and use the rest, 2 really is too much and I didn't find 1 to be enough!
~2 oranges, juice, pulp and zest, added to the wet mixture

Preheat your oven to 400F.
~Combine dry ingredients and use a whisk to combine and aerate the flour mixture.
~Set aside.
~Combine your Orange juice, pulp and zest, with your melted (and cooled)butter, eggs, with yogurt and sour cream preference.
~Pour over your dry ingredients and, with a spatula, fold together until just combined. do not overwork your muffin batter.
~Butter or line your 12 muffin tins and divide the dough into all 12 tins. Don't worry they grow.
~Bake @ 400 until toothpick comes out clean, approximately 13-16 minutes. depending on your oven.
~Remove and place tin on wire rack and lay a warm, clean towel over them for 5-10 mins. (the towel prevents any cave ins!)
~While your muffins are cooling, some, you're ready to make your glaze!
~In a saucepan, combine the juice, pulp and zest from 2 oranges, med sized or 2 tangerines if you like.
~Add your remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar, and,
~ 2/3 cup of powdered sugar on medium 0n heat until you get a nice glaze consistency, about 5-7 minutes on medium heat.
~Set aside, briefly.
~Now, with a toothpick, poke the tops of your warm muffins about 4-5 times each and then spoon your orange glaze over them. The little holes will allow some of the yummy goodness to soak into the muffin.
Cool and Enjoy! If you can't wait for them to completely cool, just enjoy!
