Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line 12 regular muffin cups with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the sour cream, 1/2 cup of the orange juice, orange peel, egg and vegetable oil with wire whisk until well mixed. Set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, mix the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well mixed. Stir in the dried fruit and coconut. Pour the sour cream mixture into the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  4. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling about 3/4 full. Bake for 18 to 23 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of orange juice and powdered sugar until smooth. Drizzle over the warm muffins. Serve the muffins warm or cool. *Tip: Try substituting other dried fruits for the tropical mix.
