Orange Corn Muffins
"THIS IS an old recipe that I decided to improve upon—I thought the topping was too sweet, so I just left it off. I also took out the pecans that the recipe called for. Sometime, I'll make lemon corn muffins by substituting lemon peel if I don't happen to have any oranges on hand."
