I was skeptical of orange muffins, but I made this recipe to use up some orange juice that was close to the expiration date. The muffins turned out amazing! I reduced the sugar in the recipe to about 1/3 cup but then sprinkled raw sugar and finely chopped almonds on top. I'll definitely make these again.
Great muffin recipe! Loved the flavors of the orange within. I did take the liberty and added some dried cranberries to the batter and due to that added a tad bit more of OJ to help the batter. Perfectly baked in 25 minutes and received 12 muffins from this recipe. Thanks for sharing a great muffin recipe that I'll be making often! Tagged in Gimme 5 tag game Jan. 2009.
These were wonderful semi-sweet, subtly flavored orange muffins. My dh & I enjoyed them very much. Made exactly as written we got 1 dozen muffins from the batter. They were quick and easy to make. The batter was thick but easy to work with. The muffins were crisp and crunchy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. Thanks so much for sharing your moms recipe.
I used fresh respberries instead of oranges and added a bit more milk--wonderful!
Made 9 muffins out of the mix. Used margarine instead of shortening and did add more orange juice (as Boomette suggested) as the batter was very thick. Added some dried cranberries to the mix. Nice breakfast muffins, not to sweet! Thanks Lavender Lynn! :)
The dough was a little bit too thick so I added orange juice. These muffins are very good. I had only 9 muffins. My baby of 2 years old ate one completely :) Thanks Lavender Lynn :) Made for market tag.
