muffins in disguise

Whenever I bake a cake, I seem to have leftover buttermilk and other ingredients that end up going to waste. I wondered if there might be some sort of sweet treat that would require exactly the amounts of my leftover ingredients. I turned to The Google and typed in the ingredients, and voila! The perfect recipe appeared! Clementine Buttermilk Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting! I even had cream cheese frosting in the freezer (that stuff freezes beautifully).

I didn’t add the clementine zest. I don’t even know where to buy clementines. But anyway, these guys are pretty tasty, but they have more of a muffin texture than a cupcake one. All that means for someone like me is that they are appropriate for breakfast as well as dessert.

    Yum! I would just use lemon zest and lots of it, but I’m a crazy person who eats lemons like they are going out of style.

    Yum, nice and citrusy. Clementines, aka cuties or California mandarines… I’m sure regular oranges would be fine.

    clemintines are found at Safeway in the wintertime. They are delicious. I’ll try this recipe for sure.
