I got a present from my friend Connie today- "Irondale Cafe - Orignal Whistle Stop - Cookbook" written by Mary Jo Smith McMichael. Irondale Cafe in Irondale, Alabama was made famous as the "Whistle Stop Cafe" by Fannie Flagg in her novel and screenplay Fried Green Tomatoes at Whistle Stop Cafe. I'm happily browsing through over 150 recipes that are simply down home and delicious!!!!!!!!!!!

Breakfast Orange Zest Cupcakes served with Red Raspberry Preserve

It is a rainy Friday, sad and gloomy, just perfect to stay in bed, read a book or watch a cheesy- or cry- movie.
So, to brighten my mood I decided to bake cupcakes. Orange Zest Cupcakes are perfect for breakfast, especially if served with your favorite preserve. Mine is Red Raspberry Preserve with seeds, sweet yet sour enough to tingle my taste-buds.

You will need 2 eggs,  125 mL vegetable oil, 200 mL sugar, 100 mL milk, 60 mL sour cream, 300 mL all-purpose flour, zest of one orange, 2 tsp baking powder.

Mix all ingredients in the order they are listed and bake for 20 min in 375 *F preheated oven.  

Enjoy with cup of coffee or tea!
