A delicious banana poppy seed muffin that bakes perfectly moist. The orange glaze adds such a unique and delicious glaze on the top and will become a new favorite!
Hi, it’s Jenn, from Eat Cake For Dinner. Happy March!! Spring is only a week and a half away and good thing, because one taste of these muffins will have you ready for warmer weather. You can never have too many banana recipes on hand, am I right? These muffins are so unique and extremely delicious.
The combo of the orange and banana reminds me of a warm Spring or Summer Day. It’s like the bright refreshing flavors of a smoothie inside a muffin. Even with a whole cup of mashed bananas, the banana flavor does not overpower these muffins. They are really really delicious and a new favorite. They bake up with a pretty dome on top and are completely impossible to resist, especially with the orange citrus glaze on top.
