Orange Yogurt Poppy Seed Muffins

I first made these muffins with my sister a few weeks ago using a lemon and lemon yogurt, as the recipe is originally written. They were sooo good and I don't usually like lemon baked goods! I love orange though, so I decided to make the recipe again using an orange and orange cream yogurt. These muffins are so easy to whip up- it's  a one bowl recipe and then you just dip it in the powdered sugar/orange juice glaze when they're warm out of the oven. My mom loved these muffins so much that she ate 5 in one day!

Here's the recipe:

1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 6oz container orange or orange cream yogurt (I used Yoplait)
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 teaspoons fresh orange juice
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. In a large bowl, stir together the milk, vegetable oil, yogurt and egg. Stir in the remaining ingredients, being careful not to overbeat. Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake for 16-18 minutes, until golden brown. For the glaze, in a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and orange juice. Dip the tops of the warm muffins in the glaze and let set.
