Orange-Yogurt Muffins

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp shredded orange peel
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
8 oz yoplait orange cream yogurt
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 tsp orange juice

In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, orange peel, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl combine egg, yogurt, oil and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and stir by hand until just moistened. (Batter will be lumpy) Spoon into greased muffin tin and bake at 400 degrees for 17 -19 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together powdered sugar and enough orange juice to make a glaze (I always use more than 2-3 teaspoons). Drizzle over warm muffins. They taste best if served warm.

Makes 12 muffins (I often double the recipe if I'm having company)
