Big, Beautiful, Orange Muffins

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Claire312

These muffins bake up big and beautiful and have a good bit of orange flavor. They make a great presentation when drizzled with softened cream cheese frosting and topped with a single flower.

These are delicious! Orangy and moist. I doubled the orange extract and I sprinkled the top of each muffin with sugar before baking.
