So for the last few weeks I have been checking the fruit breads and muffins at my local grocery store. I was just hoping for something fun and different. Of course I didn’t see anything new, so I decided I just had create my own “something different” at home.
The citrus taste in these muffins is so refreshing! I must say, I’m quite happy with the way these turned out. Although the taste and texture are wonderful, they could be a little prettier, or gussied up (as my husband says). So next version that’s exactly what I will do.
My boys loved these muffins which is always a plus!
Fresh, warm, yummy muffins when they first come out of the oven. I don’t usually like to make the Mega size muffins, BUT they were a special request from one of my Taste Testers!
The muffins are done cooling and I have just added the icing. I love this icing because it is so fresh tasting with the hand squeezed orange juice.
My boys love it when I let the icing run down the sides like that. They only take about 15-20 minutes to dry.
The top looks a little wet yet, but it’s not. It’s just the lighting. You are now set for your cup of coffee or glass of ice cold milk.
Whether you enjoy the muffins in the morning, or any other time, they will naturally brighten your day!
Orange-Lemon Yogurt Muffins
Okay I must admit, rarely do I use a recipe when baking or cooking. Yes, I’m one of those people. Usually I find a recipe I mostly like, make it a little differently, then just make changes here and there depending on what I want that day. That’s what cooks/bakers do, right? I’m embarrassed to admit, I just made these yesterday, but I can’t remember exactly how I made these muffins. I just went with the flow. It’s okay, laugh if you want to!
