Course Dessert


  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tangelos zest & juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/3 cup safflower oil
  • 1 cup pecans chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF, and line a 12-count muffin pan with paper liners, or grease each cup lightly.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and soda, ginger, sugar, and finely grated tangelo zest to a large bowl. Stir to combine the ingredients evenly.
  • In a second bowl, beat the egg lightly. Add the yogurt and oil. Beat until thoroughly blended.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry, folding over until only just combined. Do not over stir - muffin batter should always be somewhat lumpy.
  • Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups.
  • In a small bowl, combine the crushed pecans, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon sugar. Spoon evenly over the 12 muffins.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until a clean knife inserted in the center pulls out clean.
  • To make the glaze, combine the icing sugar and tangelo juice in a small bowl. Beat until the sugar has dissolved.
  • When the muffins come out of the oven, drizzle the glaze on top while they are still warm.
