The creamy spread makes these mild orange muffins such a treat. They won a blue ribbon at our county fair. Even the judge asked for the recipe! —Pam Severance, Herman, Minnesota

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
