   salt. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the sour
   cream, butter, and orange juice. Stir in the orange
   zest and brown sugar and mix well. Add the sour cream
   mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just
   combined. Fill the prepared muffin cups about
   three-fourths full. Combine the sugar with the
   remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle over the
   muffins. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25
   minutes or until lightly browned and springy to the
   touch. Allow the muffins to stand for 5 minutes before
   turning them out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm.
