Since she was born, Liv has had quite a penchant for sugar. As a matter of fact, when asked her favorite food she will often respond, "Sugar!", and she does indeed like it straight from the sugar bowl.
Usually I do my best to tailor recipes to reduce this sweet ingredient, but baking for my carpool girls today, I felt the need for something special. I went full out, and Darla at Bakingdom provided us with a most ideal recipe not skimping on the sugar. Not only do her muffins use a full cup of sugar in the batter, but the tops of the tender muffins are not only dipped into a sugar glaze, but then dipped again into a fabulous orange flecked sugar which provides a perfectly delectable topping.
For your sugar fiend, these muffins are sure to be a hit. As I made the recipe exactly as printed on Darla's blog, I'm going to send you there for the recipe... let her know we sent you, and then let us both know what you think of your own version. We call ours irresistible.
