Orange Cupcakes

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Doreen Randal

I double this recipe, you can ice them if you want, A lemon butter icing is rather nice, don't overdo the lemon juice though.

I just made these cupcakes for a Halloween treat. The recipe does need more liquid, I also added the juice from the orange. I doubled the recipe (everything except the baking powder) after reading GakonaBaby review, and it still only made 21 cupcakes, but they are very good. They filled my whole house with orange aroma while they baked.
