Mandarin Orange Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bliss

These are as close to Debbie Fields' muffin as you are going to get. They are scrumptious.

Yum! These muffins turned out to be very flavorful and tender. I reduced the amount of brown sugar to 1/2 cup and the muffins were still nicely sweet. I sprinkled the top of the muffins with sugar in the raw. I did not chop up the mandarin oranges but they broke up a bit when I stirred them into the batter. This recipe made 18 regular sized muffins.
