Mandarin Orange Muffins
Why I Love This Recipe
A good and hearty breakfast muffin.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 c Flour
1 3/4 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Allspice
1/4 ts Nutmeg
1/2 c Sugar
1/3 c Margarine
1 Egg, slightly beaten
1/4 c Milk
10 oz Mandarin orange tin, drained
1/4 c Melted butter
1/4 c Sugar
1/2 ts Cinnamon
Note: tin of broken segments is less expensive than whole segments.
About a cup of fresh orange pieces could be used.
Sift flour with other dry ingredients.
Cut in Margarine.
Combine egg and milk, and add all at once to dry ingredients -- mix only until moistened.
Fold in orange pieces and break them up more if batter seems to dry at first.
Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full.
Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from muffin tins while still warm.
Dip tops in melted butter and sugar-cinnamon mixture.
