DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Place muffin papers in muffin tins or spray tins with vegetable oil.
  • Drain oranges and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, allspice, and sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Whisk together egg and milk. Pour into flour mixture and stir with a fork just until combined. Do not overmix. Batter will be thick. (If your batter is crumbly, you may add a SMALL splash of milk). Carefully fold in mandarin oranges.
  • Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until center tests done and muffins are lightly golden.
  • While muffins are baking, place melted butter in a small bowl. In another small bowl, whisk together sugar and cinnamon.
  • When muffins are done, dip each hot muffin first into the butter and then into the cinnamon sugar. Let cool.
