"I very much like these muffins, and have made them several times. The blend of orange and cinnamon is wonderful, although I do add a little more orange marmalade than it calls for. I also like the fact that it only makes 8, since it is just my husband and I. Thanks for sharing!"

"We like these muffins. They are more dense. It is like a coffee cake. They are rather caloric though!"

"Muffins look attractive, however, turned out somewhat dry and dense. Not nearly enough flavor. Would not make again."
