Orange Poppy Seed Muffin Bundt #BundtBakers

These wonderful little Bundt Muffins are flavored with orange zest and juice and then given a wonderful crunch with the poppy seeds.

Join the Bundt Bakers as we celebrate National Muffin Day.......

I am hosting Bundt Bakers this month and when I discovered that today is National Muffin Day it made my theme choice very easy.

I invited the others to share a muffin recipe in bundt cake form.  Let's take a look at what they created:


#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all of our lovely Bundts by following our ;Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.

Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers, can be found on our ;home page.

I have this nifty little bundt cake muffin pan that I used for today's recipe. I use it quite often when making bundts because I like the automatic portion control and it makes sharing my baked goods with others much easier.  This pan is also great to use when baking for a bake sale where people seem to prefer hand held goodies over a whole cake.

You can see I treated this pan very liberally with baking spray.  That is my best advice to you when making any kind of bundt.  That baking spray is able to cover areas much easier than when you try to butter and flour the pan yourself.

The muffins slip out beautifully.  I think you will be happy with this recipe whether you make it in a full size bundt, muffin bundt or a regular muffin tin.  They are light, airy and flavorful.  Perfect for an on the go breakfast, lunchbox snack or after school treat.  Enjoy....
