Muffin Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk
  • 1/3 cup orange juice from concentrate, thawed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter cool slightly
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Glaze Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded grange peel (optional)
  • 2-3 teaspoon orange juice


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture.
  2. In medium bowl, combine egg, buttermilk, orange juice concentrate, and melted butter; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in walnuts.
  3. Line twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. Fill the cups 3/4 full with batter. Bake in a 400° F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until muffins are golden. Remove the muffins from the pans.


  1. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, orange peel, and enough orange juice (2 to 3 teaspoons) to make a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm muffins. Makes 12 muffins.

Recipe Notes

Note: To make 1/2 cup sour milk, place 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1/2 cup liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using it in a recipe.
