    HokiesMom's Note:

    From William Sonoma kitchen library. I love the light flavor of these muffins. You can choose to serve as is or top with the optional glaze I've included with the recipe. ***updated/correction*** 2/4/09 - Due to the reviews I realize I need to adjust the servings and the ingredient measurements for the glaze. ***

      ****FOR GLAZE****.
    13. 13
      Combine all the ingredients for the glaze in a small bowl and whisk together briskly until smooth and very well blended.

      If glaze is too stiff, beat in a few more drops of orange juice.
    15. 15
      Brush or spoon over the muffins while they are still a bit warm.
    16. 16
      You will end up with almost 1/2 cup of glaze which should be enough for the 18 muffins.

      We just loved these muffins! It only made 12, so I halved the glaze and they were perfect. Thank you very much for sharing such a delicious muffin recipe.

      They are delicious without the glaze. They are so moist. I made only 12 big muffins (in a 12 muffin pan). For the additional 1/4 cup of sugar I used only 1/8 cup. Thanks Hokies. Made for 123 hit wonders.

      Really Good! I used half of the glaze and couldn't keep them long enough to have more than 1. Thanks!
