Orange Tea Cakes
In another bowl, mix flour, orange peel, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Stir half the flour mixture into the butter mixture, then the buttermilk, followed by the rest of the flour mixture, until just incorporated. Spoon batter equally into 24 buttered miniature muffin cups or 12 regular muffin cups (1/3 cup).
This recipe yields 24 (1 3/4-inch) cakes.
