These were very good muffins, I did not make the frosting as I served them with dinner, and I also used sugar free marmalade and splenda for baking, they turned out perfect..
Very, very nice muffins. Can you believe I didn't have any milk in the house? So I did the next best thing, and substituted with orange juice. Worked out perfectly. I can't tell you what they taste like cold.....they were gobbled up pretty fast with our morning coffee. Thanks Kittencal for another terrific recipe.
Wonderful light and full of orange flavor. You could probably get 13 or 14 muffins from the mix and their was frosting left over. I will save the extra frosting and make another batch tomorrow!
