Orange Cupcakes Baked in Rind!


This amazing cupcake recipe comes from The Ungourmet

For the cupcake you will need:
  • 1 1/4 cups OJ
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick of room temperature butter

Place all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl. Blend on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides as needed. Blend on medium speed for 2 1/2 minutes.

Place a scoop of batter in each orange rind 1/2. Place in a 350-375 degree grill. Grill for about 20 minutes. Checking often. Rotate pan after 10 minutes. Remove from grill when toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

For the Orange Buttercream Frosting I used:

  • 1 stick of room temperature butter
  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp half and half
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Mix butter, vanilla and half and half until creamy. Stir in marmalade. Add powdered sugar a little at a time until desired consistency is reached. Place frosting in fridge to get it nice and cold before frosting the cupcakes.

This recipe makes 2 dozen cupcakes
