I think this recipe came from Southern Living. A wonderful little muffin to serve at breakfast or brunch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Grease miniature muffin cups.
  2. Mix sugar and orange juice. Set aside for dipping after muffins are baked.
  3. 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).
  4. 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 :)
