Slightly Orange Cupcakes February 5, 2012

I just bought a muffin pan and really wanted to try my hand at some cupcakes.  Unfortunately, I don’t have mixer or most the materials required to make most cupcakes however I did have everything needed to make the following recipe (except vanilla extract) and it’s super easy.

Original recipe:,196,138166-225200,00.html

Slightly Orange Cupcakes

1/2 c. softened reduced fat margarine
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1.5 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 c. orange juice
dash of milk

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Cream margarine and sugar.  Add in one egg at a time, mixing in between.

In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt.

Mix dry ingredients into sugar/butter mixture.  Stir in orange juice and milk.

Bake for 18-24 mins.

I glazed the cupcakes with a little orange juice and plan to frost them tomorrow with vanilla frosting.

These came out okay.  I was hoping they’d be a little more orange-y, but they still taste good — a little tangy and sweet.
Taking them to a superbowl party tomorrow, hopefully people like them. 🙂
Go Giants?
