You’ve all heard if you are a baker that you never want to over mix a batter recipe. Well there is a reason behind that, overmixing causes the batter to get tough and even breadier when it bakes up which in turn takes away the moist soft fluffy texture that you were aiming for. Never worry if you have small lumps of flour or mix leftover, they well bake up!

Now like I stated earlier, these are a seriously simple recipe. There are no difficult ingredients and everything comes together quickly. With this recipe we use self rising flour, you can use some all-purpose flour if you like but then you will need to add some baking powder. This dough is a little thicker, but don’t let that fool you, they are moist and light and airy just the way we want them.

Now these start off with mixing together your dry ingredients which consist of flour and sugar. Then you mix together your we ingredients which consist of butter, egg, orange juice, sour cream, orange juice and orange zest. Then combine the two together and place in a muffin tin and bake!

These Orange Muffins are really kid friendly, if your kids love orange juice then they will love these. There is something about these muffins that make them truly addicting in my eyes, but that could just be my overwhelming love for all things orange flavored.

  1. These muffins are sure to make my morning a bit brighter! I don’t go without breakfast, ever, but I can also see eating these pretty much ALL day long! And maybe all night long… 🙂 All that bright citrus flavor and that warm muffin goodness – oh yes please! And I’m thinking having this in two bites is showing a lot of restraint because I’m pretty sure I’ll try to cram the whole thing in my mouth I’ll be so excited to eat it. Don’t judge 😉

    1. Kathryn I may have gave myself too much credit when I said 2 bites. It was more like one…if that it was kind of a shove into the mouth where crumbs fly everywhere sort of deal.

  2. Those look awesome! Did you try any without the glaze? I’m wondering if they need to glaze? Pinning to my Muffins and Cupcakes Board! Thank you!

  3. I can’t WAIT to try this recipe! My husband (super weird) hates cooked fruit in any form. But since this doesn’t have any PIECES of fruit I bet he would actually taste one! LOL If not, that glaze is calling my name and I’m pretty sure I could take down all 12 of them anyways. Hahaha

  4. These cupcakes look divine! Double yum! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us at Funtastic Friday. I hope you can join us again for this week’s party:-)

  5. I made these today and they are yummy. Thank you for the recipe. I was wondering what you tool you were using in the video to scoop out the dough with. Thank you again.
