I had never had an orange cupcake before. Super yummy!

1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)- softened
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs, separate yolks in a bowl and whites in another bowl
2/3 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups flour

orange zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

Cream together butter and sugar. Add beaten egg yolks.

Sift flour and baking powder in separate bowl and add to sugar mixture - alternating with orange juice. Fold in egg whites that have been stifly beaten.

Spoon in cupcake pan and bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
