Orange Corn Muffins Recipe

"THIS IS an old recipe that I decided to improve upon—I thought the topping was too sweet, so I just left it off. I also took out the pecans that the recipe called for. Sometime, I'll make lemon corn muffins by substituting lemon peel if I don't happen to have any oranges on hand."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine egg, milk, oil and orange peel. Stir into cornmeal mixture just until moistened.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
