From the Betty Crocker website - I love this recipe because it is so easy to throw together. I like making them in both the mini size and regular size muffin tins. Great for breakfast or midday snack.
- 2 cups biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup low-fat milk
- 1 teaspoon orange peel, grated
- 1 egg
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 400°F
- Grease bottoms only of 24 miniature muffin cups or use cooking spray, or line with paper baking cups. (If using regular sized muffin tin, prepare 12 tins).
- In medium bowl, stir baking mix, 1/4 cup sugar, the softened butter, milk, orange peel and egg until blended; beat vigorously with spoon 30 seconds.
- Place batter evenly between prepared muffin cups.
- Bake 12 minutes or until light golden brown. (Bake 20 minutes if using larger muffin tins).
- In small bowl, stir together 2/3 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Immediately roll tops of muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar mixture.
- Serve warm if you can but they keep well in an air-tight container too.
I used E-Z Low Fat Bisquick Mix (which, since discovery, I always keep made and ready in a canister) for the biscuit mix. I made a half recipe which gave me 6 lovely full sized muffins for Sunday morning brekkie. I used a bit of dried blood orange peel, fat free milk and Splenda. My other concession to better health was to skip the butter dipping step and just sprinkle the tops with a bit of cinnamon and a light sprinkle of sugar (less than a tsp for all 6 muffins) before baking. They have a marvelous texture and are incredible with Cafe Orange Mocha!
