Posted for ZWT6 for the NA*ME Region - mainly Kuwait. I found this on a website dedicated to Kuwait Recipes. The frosting really adds to the depth of flavor of the orange so I highly recommend using it. When juicing your orange make sure to save 1 tsp for the frosting!
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
- 1 cup orange juice (100% fresh squeezed is best with pulp)
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄3 cup canola oil
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, sugar and the orange rind.
- Add in the orange juice, egg, and the oil. Stir so that the mixture is moistened by the wet ingredients but don't overmix it; the batter should still be lumpy.
- Turn the batter into 18 well oiled or lined muffin cups and bake at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
- When muffins are nicely browned on top, remove them from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
- For Icing: Mix the confectioner's sugar, milk and orange juice together to get a nice light icing and then drizzle over the almost fully cooled muffins. Allow to set before serving.
I tagged these thinking that I had everything on hand. Well I did but I was about 1.5 Tbsp short on the OJ. Solution: I used Grand Marnier to make up the shortfall in the muffins and for all the liquid in the icing and Howdie Doodie did they come out good! :D. I made them for a friend who's staying with us and he's a fellow who would not love 19 small muffins so he got 6 larger ones out of the recipe. They took about 25-27 mins to bake @ 350. They came out very well indeed and his rating was 5 stars and two thumbs up. Another thing is that they are so quick to mix up you can make them at any time you feel a need for muffins.
After reading the review of Tinkerbell, I decided to bake them at 350 F. And after 17 minutes the tooth-pick came out clean. They are very moist with a great flavor of orange. I got 12 muffins (a good size for me). As you can see I used bottled juice but 100% Florida ;) I didn't do the icing. They are great like that. Thanks Melissa :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
The flavor of these was really good. The frosting made them though! We did find they were just a bit dry for our tastes; maybe I'll try subbing half of the oil for applesauce next time to add a little moisture or try baking slightly less. I made a full recipe but only got 10 muffins, with the cups filled about 2/3 full. They rose nicely & baked in the time stated. I used an orange & a half to get enough juice & I added all the pulp in the batter. It really made for a delicious muffin. Thanks for posting, Hokie Pokie! :) Made & enjoyed for the Spain & Portugal Forum's Oranges! Event AND ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes.
