Orange Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze

I found this on Pioneer Woman and have loved it.  Because we hardly ever eat cereal for breakfast in the morning, I am always looking for something new to feed the kids that is quick, yummy and healthy (most of the time anyway).  This definitely a keeper.

1 c. sugar
1 c. butter, softened
2 eggs
1 c. buttermilk (or 1 T. vinegar + just under 1 c. milk)
1 t. baking soda
2 c. flour
Grated rind of 2 oranges
Juice of 2 oranges
1 c. brown sugar

*  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream butter and sugar together in medium bowl.  Add eggs and mix well.  Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk and pour in mixing bowl.  Add flour and orange rind, mix well.  Line muffin pan with liners and fill 2/3 full.  Bake 17-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove.

*  Combine brown sugar and orange juice in small bowl.  Drizzle over muffins. Remove muffins from pan and eat warm.
