Orange Buttermilk Cupcakes


Found this recipe online from Taste of Home 2009. As I had buttermilk and a orange to use up, thought I would give it a try. Everyone liked them, except once again I ended up with more than the recipe called for. I guess I really need to buy some new muffin pans.
However here is the recipe and hope everyone enjoys them.
Orange Buttermilk Cupcakes
9 Servings Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 egg
1 egg white
2 tablespoons plus 2-1/2 teaspoons orange juice, divided
1-1/4 cups cake flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
Directions
In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, sugar and orange
peel. Beat in the egg, egg white and 2 tablespoons orange juice.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ginger;
gradually add to the butter mixture alternately with buttermilk,
beating well after each addition. Start and end with flour.
Coat muffin cups with cooking spray or use paper liners; fill
three-fourths full with batter. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes
or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool
for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool
In a small bowl combine confectioners' sugar and remaining orange
juice. Frost cupcakes. Yield: 9 servings. (I got 16)
