A great but simple recipe for a first-time "baker"! More importantly, this muffin is so delicious I'm now inspired with my newly-discovered skill! Last weekend, I was collecting easy muffin recipes for my elderly mother who has just recently learned how to bake, as well. Since she is not computer-savvy, I browsed through several possibilities for her! Going through numerous recipes made me realize that baking did not seem so difficult after all. When I told my nurses about this, they challenged me to "shock" them by baking one of the recipes I collected for my mother! Today being a snowbound day made it ideal to try my hand at baking! I am impressed!

I was a bit confused by the recipe: was it 1c of oranges AND juice, or 1c of just liquid? I went with 1c of liquid, and I think that was wrong; they were too mushy and totally flopped. Mine turned out a bit bland, too; I used water, but with a little extra extract and some zest. I like my muffins a tad sweeter than these; that would be easy enough to fix next time.

Wonderful muffins. So soft with a hint of sweetness. I was looking for something to make with what I had on hand so I used lemon extract instead of orange and instead of water to make 1 cup of liquid, I used orange juice. I did not have any nuts on hand so I had to omit that step but it did not make a difference. They we just easy and delicious as they were. MewMew, thanks for a great recipe and one that will be repeated in my home.

I was looking for some muffin ideas last night and printed a few possibilities. Made these this morning (6am they were in the oven!). They came out AMAZING. I ran out of Orange Extract and used Lemon - worked out fine and my picky toddlers were devouring them as I was leaving this AM. :-) Thanks for this - what a treat! Definately a keeper!

Thank you MewMew for sharing your lovely recipe. We had these wonderful light, moist, tender muffins with dinner. They were absolutely delicious. I added sliced almonds to half the muffins I made.

I followed the recipe exactly and had nice moist muffins. Well not exactly, our tins of mandarin oranges come in 284ml size which is about 9 ounces and I used the whole tin. I did bake them an extra 5 minutes as I wasn't sure they were done at 25 min.I love mandarin oranges and this is another great way to use them. Thanks for the recipe Mewmew.
