These are delicious! Orangy and moist. I doubled the orange extract and I sprinkled the top of each muffin with sugar before baking.

VERY GOOD recipe. Mine made 6 large muffins AND a loaf pan of bread which was also very good. I added a little more orange extract. I would recommend this recipe highly!!!
