I struggled to call these muffins because really, what is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake? I think the answer is ICING. I don’t normally eat a ton of icing sugar but when I do, I give myself the permission to enjoy every last bite, lick of the bowl and fingers. I am sure professional bakers could give me a more definitive answer to the many differences between a cupcake and a muffin but they aren’t here haha so we will go with icing. Omit the icing and these are all muffins, so you choose!
I originally wanted to make these with orange juice. When creating them I swore I had a couple in my crisper, Turned out I had a grapefruit but no oranges. I paused for a hot second and then threw caution to the wind and got to making my cupcake/muffins with what I had. Trust your instincts people! I am SO HAPPY with the results and I am pretty sure you will be too. If grapefruit isn’t your jam, make them with oranges. I am going to do that very thing today
