Orange Buttermilk Muffins

Grease 8 large or 12 small muffin tins, or line tins with muffin cup.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl cream together the sugar and butter.

Add the egg; incorporate well.

In a blender or food processor, combine the orange and the buttermilk. It helps if the orange is cut up into chunks before processsing.

Add the orange/buttermilk mixture to the egg, butter, and sugar mixture.

Sift the flour together with the baking power, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the liquid.

When all the ingredients are combined, fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.

Bake in the 400-degree oven for 20-25 minutes.


6 tablespoons soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

1 medium-sized orange with peel
1 cup buttermilk

2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted with:
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dash of salt


A small ice-cream scoop makes it easy to fill the muffin cups equally.

Recipe variations:

Add 1/3 cup of dried cranberries ("Craisins"®) to the batter before spooning into the muffin cups.
