Orange Juice Muffins
(12 servings)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon grated orange zest
2/3 cup fresh orange juice (or the juice of 2 large oranges and enough water to make 2/3 cup)
1/2 cup melted butter
2 large eggs - lightly beaten
1 Tablespoon melted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup ground walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare 12 standard muffin cups with muffin papers or cooking spray.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, white sugar and orange peel.

Stir in orange juice, 1/2 cup melted butter, eggs and chopped nuts.

Pour batter evenly into 12 muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together the single Tablespoon melted butter, the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the top of each muffin.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean (no batter).

So good served warm with butter and honey. Trust me... fresh juice makes all the difference.
