Orange-Patridgeberry Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze

It was beautiful here today, with a fresh cool breeze, so it was perfect for making muffins........

I tried a new recipe today

Orange-Patridgeberry Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze
 In a large bowl, sift together:
2 ½ cups flour
¾ cup white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ tsp salt

In a separate bowl whisk together until well combined
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Zest of one large orange ( or 2 small)
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Add the mixture to the dry ingredients and fold in well. During the last few turns of folding add:

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen partridgeberries
 Mix only enough to incorporate the dry ingredients. Spoon batter into greased or paper lined
muffin tins, and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack. Makes 12 large muffins.

Cinnamon Glaze

1 cup icing sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 tbsp milk

Sift together the icing sugar and cinnamon. Add enough milk to bring the glaze 
to a thick but pourable consistency. Drizzle over baked muffins.
