3 dozen mini muffins
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Nonstick spray, for spraying muffin tins
  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray mini muffin tins with nonstick spray.

Cream together the butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl by hand or using an electric mixer. Add the eggs and beat well. Mix in the flour. In a separate bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the buttermilk. Add the buttermilk mixture to the batter along with the orange zest and mix well.

Fill the muffin tins two-thirds full with the batter and bake until lightly browned, 12 to 17 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar and orange juice (you should have about 1/2 cup juice) and mix well. Drizzle this glaze over the warm muffins in the tins. Remove the muffins while still warm.

If you don't have buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon white vinegar to just under 1 cup of milk.
