I think this recipe came from Southern Living. A wonderful little muffin to serve at breakfast or brunch.
- Preheat oven to 375º. Grease miniature muffin cups.
- Mix sugar and orange juice. Set aside for dipping after muffins are baked.
- Cream butter and sugar. Add sour cream alternately with the dry ingredients, just until moistened. Fold in orange peel, raisins and nuts (batter will be stiff).
- Bake at 375º for 10-12 minutes. While still warm, dip muffins in the sugar-orange juice mixture.
I made these for a Christmas Brunch and they were good. I tend to like things on the sweet side so next time I will use less zest or more sugar, but my guests enjoyed these and one person in particular loved them. Thanks for posting :)
These are wonderful muffins. I've made this substituting the sour cream with plain fat-free yoghurt and it turns out to work very well. I also omit the raisins because we are not very fond of them. This one is a good muffin delight :)
