quick cooking oats
grated orange zest, or to taste
The addition of salt in this recipe would improve the taste of these muffins greatly. As the submitter suggests, orange zest is 'to taste', so I used two tablespoons rather than the suggested three, and found the essence to be very pleasant, not too strong and not by any means too weak, but the underlying flavor of the muffin is sorely lacking. The batter was extremely thin, like pancake batter thin, which had me worried, but they baked up perfectly moist and rose just past the level of the tin (bear in mind I filled the cups 3/4 full and only filled ten cups rather than the full twelve. I'm glad I did, as these wouldn't have been nearly as attracttive looking if I had divided the batter evenly as suggested). I chose dried cranberries over the raisins, the sweet tang of which saved these muffins this time. I really enjoyed the texture, the orange flavor, and the pleasant oatiness of these muffins. Made again, with salt, I'm sure this recipe will become a keeper, so thank you!
Added 1/2t allspice and used cherry flavored craisins. The batter was quite thin, but they baked nicely. The oats gave them a heartier texture which, to me, overpowered the delicate flavor. If I made these again I would sub flour for the oats to see if they would stand out more with a lighter crumb.
I altered this recipe to make a heartier muffin and they came out good! Nice orange flavor! I used regular oats. 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 regular 2 egg whites instead of 1 egg added ground flax 1/2 milk and 1/2 orange juice added orange extract replaced the raisins with chocolate chips no glaze on top...sprinkled with turbinado sugar.
Muffin with nice oatmeal texture and tangy orange flavor. Instead of the orange juice/sugar icing I made a streusel from another muffin recipe on this site. I had no problems with sticking, I use a jumbo muffin tin and just greased the tin with butter. I did not add the raisins to the batter.
Loved them! The only thing I did was leave out the raisins because I don't like raisins but they were really good over all. I didn't have problems with them sticking because I oiled the muffin pan a bit with canola oil. Thumbs up!
used Splenda in place of Sugar and it turned out delicous!!!
These muffins had a good taste and texture but they stuck terribly to the muffins papers. By the time we peeled the papers off we were all left with just about half of a muffin. I don't know what the problem was but I was glad I wasn't serving them to anyone besides my family.
So easy and good. I added a little salt, a tsp of cinnamon and some flax meal. Used craisins instead of raisins because I like them better. Also, I wanted a little more sweetness on top, so I used about 1/2 cup powdered sugar and enough o.j. to make a thin glaze. I put a teaspoonful on each muffin, a couple of minutes out of the oven. Just added a little shiny glaze and a sweet orange flavor without being like a cupcake. Made 12. My batter did not seem to be thin.
