Today's find: Orange Muffins

Because I thought that this recipe was more fun than the banana bread recipe which did not have bananas in the ingredient list.

Orange Muffins from the kitchen of M. Corbitt, from the recipe file of Ann Harwood Bryce

Makes 3 dozen small muffins

1 cup butter or margaine
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
Grated rind of 2 oranges
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
Juice of 2 oranges

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs.  Beat until well mixed.  Dissolve the baking soda in buttermilk and add it, alternating with the flour, to the egg mixture.  Add orange rind.  Fill well-buttered muffin tins 2/3 full.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.  Mix orange juice and brown sugar.  Spoon over muffins and remove them from tins immediately.
