Orange juice is perfect to top off breakfast, but did you know you can also use it for recipes in entrees, desserts and in this case muffins?!
What You Need
2 cups flour
⅔ cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup butter (cold is best for easy cutting)
1 cup milk chocolate chips
½ cup diced pecans
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 large egg
¼ cup Minute Maid Original Orange Juice
½ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon Minute Maid Original Orange Juice
½ cup powdered sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together - the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Then cut the butter into small chunks or thin slices and mix into the dry batter. Mix until fully moistened. Add in the chocolate chips and pecans.
Insert liners into muffin pan. Fill the liners half way with batter for smaller muffins or ¾ full for larger muffins. Bake for approximately 16 minutes.
While the muffins are baking, mix the ingredients for the glaze.
After the allotted time or when your muffins are golden brown, remove them from the oven and let cool for 5-7 minutes. Lightly drizzle the orange glaze on top. Serve and enjoy!
