    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    These delicious little orange-y, buttery, coconutty muffins are from the 1833 Umpleby House Inn in New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They're so easy and quick to whip up! I adapted the recipe to make mini-muffins, since that's my preference, but the original directions for making standard-size muffins are included, also. Recipe makes 24 mini-muffins or 12 standard muffins (and has the distinction of being one of the rare baking recipes where the yield is accurate!)

      Made these for my book club luncheon. They went fast! I did make a glaze out of confectioner's sugar and orange juice and dipped the top of the muffins in and then sprinkled coconut on top of them. They looked very gourmet. Thanks : )

      Lots of bursting flavors in a simple recipe. I made regular muffins and only got 8 with this recipe. I did not have OJ so I substituted with pineapple juice (yum), and put in some flaxseed for a healthy twist. Also I drizzled honey over the coconut on top of the muffins, this gives it a nice and sweet crunch.

      My husband and I loved these little muffins. I doubled the recipe and am so glad I did. We kept a few out to eat and froze the rest to bring out later. Will definitely be making these again.
