As usual lots of talk of food on the UK thread especially cake. Now I am not much of a cake maker but I do a mean muffin.So at the request of lostintheforest here is my recipe for Orange muffins
10 oz plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarb
1/2 tsp salt
4oz granulated sugar
1 egg
3 tsps finely grated orange rind
(of 2 large oranges be careful not to include any pith)
Juice of both oranges first set aside enough for glaze add water to remainder to make up to 8fl oz
3fl oz corn oil

3 oz icing sugar
3-4 tsps orange juice
1/2 tsp grated rind
Prepare muffin tins (makes 10 muffins)
Heat oven to 375- 400f 190-200c Gas mark 5-6
Sift together flour,baking powder,bicarb,salt and sugar.
In a separate bowl beat the egg and add grated rind, juice(plus water) and oil
Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until just combined.Batter will be lumpy
Spoon into tins and bake 20-25 mins until lightly brown and spring back when pressed

Combine glaze ingredients and spread over warm muffins
