Orange Muffins

Orange muffins are mildly sweet and delicious muffins made with freshly squeezed orange juice and zest. Muffins are considered to be originated in the States and are quite popular quick breakfast bread. There are numerous variations and some of them are official state muffins like corn muffin belongs to Massachusetts, apple muffins are official in New York like so.

I made orange muffins as I had two cartons of oranges lying to be used. Almost three-fourth of my oranges went in the juice and a few of them I used in these cupcakes. The original recipe suggested all purpose flour but I replaced it with whole wheat flour. My family loved the muffins and out of all the bakes since the starting of April, these went in to be repeated for sure category.
