Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture.
Combine brown sugar, oil, rind, juice, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake at 375° for 17 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched in center.
Amazing cupcake! The timing was exact and so were the measurements. Really tasty, has a bit of everything and the flavors match perfectly.
Just make it.. If you don't then I pity you for having to miss out on this.
A delicious recipe, and really good for you! I did make some substitutions to reduce the calorie content and raise the fiber content. I replaced half the flour with whole wheat flour. I eliminated the oil, replacing it with a half cup natural unsweetened apple sauce. I only used a 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and I didn't use the turbinado sugar. All those adjustments, and they're still delicious!
This recipe was definitely good. The muffins I thought turned out a bit too sweet and could be a tad moister. I only baked them for about 13 or 14 minutes. I also cut the sugar to 1/2 cup but I would cut it even more next time, and although the sugar sprinkled on top is a nice idea, I probably leave that step out next time. Good overall.
This has become on of my favorites. Very moist. They also freeze well enabling me to make a double batch and enjoy them longer - I just pull one out of the freezer and warm it up in the toaster oven with a bit of butter - yum! I did make them one time using 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour for added fiber and had good luck with that modification.
