Sunshine Muffins

Since I live in the "Sunshine State," I just had to share this delicious muffin recipe that utilizes juice from our most famous crop---oranges. These muffins are a must when any of our "Yankee" friends come to visit. —Sharyn Browning, Loxahatchee, Florida

    These muffins did not turn out looking like the picture, so not an attractive appearance in my opinion. Flavor is good, texture is average. If I made them again I would add a crump topping to make them more appealing.

    I have made these many times over the years. The first time I made them I didn't have any walnuts, marmalade or orange extract, so I omitted them. The muffins were still delicious, and I've made them the same way ever since
