I have a few Cooking Apps on my phone. I like to look at the recipes when I have an extra minute. This recipe came off the Betty Crocker App. I love the orange and almond flavor combination. Have a great Wednesday!
Orange Almond Muffins
3/4 cup milk
1/3cup vegetable oil
1/4cup frozen orange juice concentrate
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/2teaspoon almond extract
1egg slightly beaten
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2cup granulated sugar
3teaspoons baking powder
1/3cup finely chopped blanched almonds
2tablespoons decorator sugar crystals, if desired
2tablespoons finely chopped blanched almonds, if desired
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 6 jumbo muffin cups with liners.
In large bowl, beat milk, oil, juice concentrate, orange zest, almond extract and egg with spoon until blended. Stir in flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt all at once just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Stir in 1/3 cup almonds. Divide batter evenly among cups. Sprinkle with sugar crystals and 2 tablespoons almonds.
Bake muffins 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from pan to wire rack.
If you desire, you can add an orange glaze to the muffins by mixing 1 tablespoon orange juice, 1 tablespoon milk and 1 1/2 – 2 cups confectioners sugar.
