Orange And Poppy Seed Cupcakes

I was feeling a little gloomy yesterday, and the two oranges in the fridge won't be enough for fresh OJ. So I decided to bake cupcakes to pass the time and keep my mind off being lonely.

1/3 cup olive oil (would use butter to make it creamy)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
orange zest (I used zest from the 2 oranges)
1 cup flour
orange juice (freshly squeezed from the 2 oranges)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp poppy seeds

Then I baked it for 15-20 minutes. I topped it off with cream cheese frosting with some left over orange zest and pulp.

It came out a bit too sweet for my liking. So next time I'll use less sugar.
