Glazed Orange Muffins

Share

These glazed orange muffins would make the perfect start to any day! They make a great breakfast for busy morning or a quick afternoon snack. These muffins are super light, soft and bursting with orange flavor! The orange glaze adds just the right amount of sweetness.

I love making a batch of these and then freezing half of the batch. They are perfect for back to school, so that we can easily pull them out of the freezer on busy morning for breakfast or to pack in lunches. All you need to do to freeze them is place them in a airtight ziptop bag and then when you’re ready to eat one, place it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. So delicious! My whole family LOVED them.

I’m excited to be partnering with my favorite orange juice brand, Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice, for this post. My family loves their not-from-concentrate Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice! It tastes delicious and our family loves that it’s made from 100 percent Florida-grown oranges. You just can’t beat the fresh flavor and it added the perfect sweetness to these muffins. I think that’s what gives it such a fresh taste!  I used the some pulp variety for this recipe, but any will work great.

Glazed Orange Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 to 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Orange glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons not-from-concentrate Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice, more or less as needed
  • Orange zest, if desired

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400º F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners (or use a silicone muffin pan) and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined. Pour in the eggs, oil, milk, orange juice and zest. Stir just until combined.

Using a large scoop (or 1/4 cup) to add the batter to the prepared muffin tin. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or golden brown along the edges. Let sit in the pan for a couple minutes and then remove to a cooling rack.

For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, orange juice and zest. Then drizzle over top of the muffins.

To enhance the orange flavor, you can add 1 teaspoon of orange extract. Muffins are best within 2 days. Good in the freezer up to 2 months.

You could certainly serve these muffins without the glaze, too. If we leave off the glaze, we’ll usually add a little butter and jam :)
