If you’ve ever eaten a syrup cake you’ll remember how wonderfully moist and sticky it was. If you’ve not eaten one, you’re going to be in for a treat. Perfect for this time of year when citrus is at its peak, the muffins are flavored with the zest of oranges and lemons (by all means add lime too if you desire) and then once cooked, they’re anointed with a citrus syrup. I seem to have acquired an orchard of citrus so I used navel oranges, blood oranges and lemon for the syrup. Cara-cara oranges would be a perfect addition in lieu of blood oranges.
