These are definitely my new favorite thing!  They were so delicious!  My kids-I mean, my kids-ate these up and wanted more.  These were so tasty!

2 eggs
1 C white sugar
1/2 C oil
1/2 C milk or buttermilk
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
2 C flour
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp butter
1 tsp orange zest
Beat together eggs, sugar and oil.  Mix in milk, salt, baking powder, poppy seeds, flavorings and flour.  Do not over mix.
Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool until slightly warm and then add glaze.
While baking mix together glaze and allow it to cool a bit and thicken slightly.  In a saucepan over low heat combine sugar, juice, extracts and butter.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Once glaze is cooled to room temperature dip tops of slightly warm muffins into glaze.
