I love orange-flavored muffins, and these are simple and delicious. I made two batches, one plain, and one with tiny chocolate chips. After zesting the orange I squeezed the juice and added enough milk to make up the 3/4 of a cup called for. This is a great breakfast treat, and I also had one late at night, cut into quarters and added some vanilla ice cream and some chocolate syrup. I am certainly going to be making these again! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!

Never had orange muffins before and wanted to give these a try. Just not excited about them. I added orange juice too.

These muffins were pleasant, but they just didn't taste very orangey to me, even though I used the juice of the orange as well. I'll try a recipe that uses orange concentrate or marmalade next time.
