Orange-Yogurt Muffins

1 3/4 c flour
1/2 c sugar
2 t. orange zest
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 egg, beaten
1 8 oz. carton orange yogurt (see HINT: below)
1/3 c oil
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c sifted powdered sugar (opt)
1-2 t. orange juice (opt)

Grease or line muffin tin with paper cups. Combine flour, sugar, orange peel, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center and set aside. Meanwhile, combine egg, yogurt, oil, and vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to dry mixture just till moistened (batter should be fairly lumpy). Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or till golden. Cool in muffin cups for 5 minutes and if desired, drizzle the orange juice/powdered sugar mixture over warm muffins.

HINT: When I see I have 2 oranges in my fruit bowl, I like to grate the orange peels, slice both in half, juice them and use that juice AND some of the pulp to make my own orange yogurt. I like to use a THICK plain yogurt (Greek Gods Yogurt I can find at Smith's Grocery Store), the orange juice, pulp, and a little honey. I measure out 16 oz. of yogurt and double the whole recipe...this is a favorite in our home on the weekends!
