Orange zest is a revelation!
Why don't I use orange zest more often. It brightens any gloomy day and any ordinary baked good.
Sunday was a beautiful spring day, and what better muffin to make after church than Dorie's Citrus-Currant Sunshine Muffins. Though, since I got lazy and didn't run to the store for currants mine should be renamed Citrus-Raisin Muffins.
These muffins were not overly sweet and they were also buttery and light.
I am really loving raisins these days. Does this mean that I am finally growing up? (Cause raisins are old people food right?) No seriously? All my life I've shunned the shriveled things and now I will throw them in anything!
For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or visit Lauryn's blog, Bella Baker, as it was her pick this week. Be sure to check out the LYL post to read other TWD baker's blogs!
