These muffins are moist and delicious! I added an egg to the batter because it was so thick. They turned out great. I also substituted vanilla yogurt for the sour cream and lemon zest for the orange because I was out of both. I will definitely be making these again ;)

Excellent!! I made this recipe almost as written. I skipped the nuts and, as I, too, found the batter very thick, I added a couple of tablespoons of milk. No eggs. These are absolutely delicious and will be a regular at my house.
