Mandarin orange muffins

Yield: 12 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Flour
1¾ teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Allspice
¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
½ cup Sugar
⅓ cup Margarine
1 \N Egg, slightly beaten
¼ cup Milk
10 ounces Mandarin orange tin, drained
\N \N TOPPING (optional)
¼ cup Melted butter
¼ cup Sugar
½ teaspoon 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 ¾ 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. Makes 12 large muffins.
