Orange Cupcake Recipe

This Orange Cupcake Recipe is a real favorite as they are so easy to make as everything, including the orange, goes in the food processor.

Because you process all the ingredients in the food processor, the texture is a little denser than a cupcake that has had the butter and sugar creamed together. However, it doesn't feel 'heavy' to eat.

I often add a couple of tablespoons of poppy seeds to the mixture to give it a little extra texture and flavor.
