Summers here: Orange Zesty Cupcakes have arrived.

I came home last week to 3 huge baskets full of oranges and grapefruits. That means it is summer in my house. It is so nice to have fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning, and when you are baking orange cupcakes.

BTW-- Sorry for the poor quality photos, I took them with my phone.

pre-heat oven at 350

mix ingredients of bowl 1:
2 cups of flour
2 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt

stir the ingredients of bowl 2:
3 tbsp veggie oil
4 tbsp fresh orange juice
3 tsp fine orange zest

In bowl 3:
beat 1.5 cups of sugar with 14 tbsp butter
beat in 2 eggs, 1 at a time.
beat in bowl 1 alternating with bowl 2

bake for 18-20 min (should be somewhere between the consistency of cake and pound cake)
