Yield: 12 servings
|1¾ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|1 \N||Egg, slightly beaten|
|10 ounces||Mandarin orange tin, drained|
|\N \N||TOPPING (optional)|
|¼ cup||Melted butter|
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.
