Orange flavored muffins with a struesel topping!

Top Review by Julia G.

These muffins are heavenly! Light and fluffly and you can taste the orange. I give it four stars instead of five though, because the butter for the streusel topping should not be melted. I did so anyway as the recipe instructed. So what did I get? Not a crumbly streusel to sprinkle on top, but liquid. So as soon as I put the muffins in to bake, there was a burning smell. The so-called streusel ran off onto the pan and some dripped onto the bottom of the oven. Next time, I shall not melt the butter for the streusel topping.
