GoodBye Summer!

This was the nicest of Summers.

So...have an Orange Cupcake!
And get ready for a great Fall.

Orange Muffins
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp orange extract
2/3 cup orange juice

Preheat Oven 350*
Line 18 muffin cups
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add egg, beat well, then add vanilla and mix.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Mix orange extract with orange juice.
Add half the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mix well,
then add half the juice mixture and mix; repeat.
Spoon batter into prepared cups, sprinkle with some sugar
if you want crunchy muffin tops.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.


  1. Jessica,
    Thanks so much for the constant comments and encouragement on my blog. Also thank you for the fish and the CD from your daughter. I feel very blessed by the love that everyone is showing me. I love the pictures on this post. They are so beautiful.

    In Christ,

  2. Lyndsay - You are so welcome!

    A lot of the pictures taken on the walks, we've stopped and lifted you up in our prayers. So, in a way, you've been to Butterfly Ridge and the path just above the Salute to the Sun Tree!

    Continue healing! We're looking forward to your "special" day!

    Lots of Love to you & family!
    ~ Jessica
