Orange Pecan Muffins Recipe

Our neighbors often give us oranges from their trees, so I revised this muffin recipe to make use of this delicious and vitamin-rich fruit.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 large oranges
  • Water
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4-1/2 cups raisin bran cereal
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients. Set aside. Remove the peel from two of the oranges. Cut all the oranges into eighths and remove seeds; puree in a blender or food processor If necessary, add enough water to puree to equal 2 cups. Stir oranges, eggs, oil, cereal and pecans into the dry ingredients. Blend only until mixed. Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 375° for 10-25 minutes. Yield: 18 muffins.
