Glazed Orange Muffins


Description

These delicious whole wheat glazed orange muffins are topped with a sugary zest. So easy to make, bright, and fresh for breakfast!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • juice of 1 or 2 oranges (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • generous 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • orange zest + white sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Whisk together the milk, oil, egg, corn syrup, orange juice, and a pinch of zest.
  2. Mix in the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt until batter is just combined. Pour batter into a greased muffin tin and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until tops spring back when pressed.
  3. For the glaze, mix the powdered sugar with the orange juice, adding 1 additional teaspoon of orange juice at a time to achieve the desired consistency. For the sugared zest, combine 1 part zest with 2 parts sugar and combine with your fingers until crumbly.
  4. When muffins are done, cool completely before dipping tops in glaze. Once dipped in glaze, immediately sprinkle with sugared zest.
