Place 1 ¾ cups flour, ¼ cup sugar, 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder, and ¾ teaspoons salt in a large bowl. Stir thoroughly and make a well in the center. Combine 1 well-beaten egg, ¾ cup milk, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon orange extract, and 1 teaspoon grated orange rind. Add all at once to dry ingredients. Stir quickly, just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fill muffin pans 2/3 full. (Either grease the muffin pans or use paper liners.) Bake at 400 degrees (F) about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. These are really great muffins--enjoyable for everyday, but elegant enough for company! You may serve them as an appetizer, or the bread for your meal, or as a small dessert. They are quite versatile! Enjoy!!! --Betty
