Hot muffins out of the oven waiting to be dressed in their glaze!
Orange-Kissed Blueberry Muffins
2 cups flour
2 cups flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 c butter, soft
1 cup sugar
1 T fresh orange zest
3/4 c orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 1/2 c blueberries
Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a separate bowl until light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and and the orange zest until well blended.
Stir in half of the flour by hand, add the orange juice and then the rest of the flour.
Gently fold by hand until just combined - do not over mix.
Carefully fold in the blueberries - the batter will be thick.
Spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins.
Bake @ 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until a pick inserted comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and glaze.
1 c powdered sugar
1 T orange zest
2-3 T freshly squeezed orange juice
Mix until blended and drizzle over muffin tops.
