Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins-Tuesdays with Dorie

It’s raining today, but these citrus currant sunshine muffins transport me to a bright sunny day in an orange grove.  The orange and lemon flavors come through loud and clear with the currants adding some substance to the muffin.  The recipe calls for orange zest along fresh orange and lemon juice. I also added the lemon zest from the juiced lemon. Thanks to Lauryn of Bella Baker for her pick of the week. She also has the recipe for these tangy delightful muffins which not only taste great fresh from the oven, but also  pretty darn good when toasted and spread with butter. If you have Dorie Greenspan’s book, “Baking From My Home to Yours”, the recipe is on page 7. Also, give a look at the Tuesdays with Dorie blog roll to see other variations of the citrus currant sunshine muffins.

    Yum, they look like a chock of golden sunshine! I kinda wish I didn't omit the dried fruit…I made a loaf instead of muffins. Buttercreambarbie
