3 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
2/3 cup 2% milk
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/3 cup currants or raisins or dried cranberries

1/2 cup melted butter

In a small bowl, beat 3 Tablespoons butter and the 1/3 cup sugar until well blended. Then beat in orange peel and egg. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and coriander. Stir milk into butter mixture then add to dry mixture and mix well. Stir in nuts and currants. Spoon into greased medium-sized muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.

A really sweet way to start the day is with these buttery morsels: freshly baked sugar crusted muffins. Serve them with coffee, eggs, sausage, and juice.
