I’m calling in sick today. Yep, my annual late-winter head cold has finally made it’s appearance. Once Spring finally arrived I thought I was going to be in the clear. I was wrong. 

But have no fear, I’m leaving you in good hands. Melissa from No. 2 Pencil is here and has baked up a seriously divine looking treat.

You can bet I’ll be making these for my guests. No questions asked. But for now, I’m grabbing my DayQuil and a box of tissues and hoping that this cold goes away as quickly as it came.  

And in case you were wondering, it is actually snowing today. And to make things even worse, that 81 degree day I was so looking forward to next week is now down to 68. Ugh. 


Hello friends of Inspired by Charm! I’m Melissa from No. 2 Pencil, and I am beyond thrilled to be guest posting here today. I am a huge fan of Michael, he is truly talented and inspiring, and I am seriously jealous of his artist ability!

While not blessed with the ability to draw, I love to be creative at home and in the kitchen.  I also have a deep and abiding love for mimosa’s, which is where the inspiration for Mimosa Muffins came from. Here is the step-by-step and the recipe for these fun and yummy muffins.

Inspired By Charm

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a standard size cupcake pan with cupcake liners, or spray with non stick cooking spray. I used these cute little ruffled liners made by Wilton, and I finally had an excuse to buy some of the single serving size champagne bottles. Adorable and perfect for muffin making!

Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl, along with orange zest and whisk together. Combine melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract and champagne (yippee!) in a separate smaller bowl. Then add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined. Batter will be lumpy, and that is ok. Evenly divide batter into muffin pan to make a total of twelve muffins. Bake muffins at 400 degrees for about 18 minutes.

Remove muffins and set aside on a raised cooling rack. While they begin to cool, prepare the glaze by combining two tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice with one cup of powdered sugar and one teaspoon of orange zest. Gently spoon glaze over still warm muffins. Serve and enjoy!

Mimosa Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line cupcake pan, or spray with non stick cooking spray.

2 1/2 cups of all-pupose flour

1/2 cup of sugar

4 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt

zest of two large oranges – 1 teaspoon reserved for glaze

1 cup of champagne (sparkling wine)

1 stick of melted butter

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

For the glaze

1 cup of powdered sugar

2 Tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice

1 teaspoon of orange zest

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add zest from two oranges and whisk into dry ingredients. Don’t forget to reserve a teaspoon of zest for the glaze. In a separate smaller bowl, combine melted butter, champagne, eggs and vanilla and stir together. Then add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir, just until combined.  

Divide batter evenly among the cupcake pan, and bake for about 18 minutes, or until light golden brown.

Remove muffins from oven, and prepare glaze while they begin to cool. Spoon glaze over muffins while they are still warm, not hot. If the muffins are very hot, the glaze will run off too quickly.

Enjoy your Mimosa Muffins.

Thank you for letting me share Michael!

First, don’t these pancakes look delish? With protein packed greek yogurt it’s a good excuse to eat pancakes for breakfast everyday. Don’t you think?

    Made the mimosa muffins this morning for my husband’s birthday, and served them with mimosas using the fresh squeezed orange juice. They were absolutely awesome!!! I was a little worried about the thick consistency of the better when I put it in the muffin tin, but absolutely nothing to worry about, they came out perfectly!! Thank you so much!

    These look so good. Planning a bridal shower for my niece and saw a mimosa bar on Pinterest. These would go with the mimosa bar. May want to do mini muffins. How long do you think I will need to bake them?
