Wow are these muffins ever good! I used fresh chopped mandarine oranges in place of canned, this recipe is going into my favorites! thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten :)
These are awesome. I've made them so many times, always with great results. Then of course, the day I make them for a bake sale, I'm out of vegetable oil so sub Olive oil. Yuck. and I'm in a rush so I scoop instead of sprinkle the topping on. Bad Bad Bad. the topping sunk to the middle and made horrible looking muffins. Stick to the recipe and all is good!!
Yummy yummy in our tummies! These were a huge hit with a group of teens! Loved the topping especially to the muffins. Made 24 muffins perfectly! Tagged in 1.2.3 Hits and glad I did. I'll be making these often for potlucks and get-togethers.
