These are my all-time favorite muffins, and I have a hard time eating just one. With their pretty color ans tangy flavor, they're delectable. Serve them with brunch or as a tasty snack.

"I prepared this recipe 7/18/14 and I used 1 Tbsp. ground orange, 1 tsp. ORANGE extract, and used: 2 cups fresh raspberries as I had them available and needed to use them! I used 1 tsp. salt in the dry ingredients rather than 1/2 tsp. and I added 1/8 cup flour to the raspberries so that berries wouldn't sink to bottom of the muffins. I'd beat the eggs with the half and half cream, canola or vegetable oil & extract. The raspberries did make the muffins tangy! I'm finding that there are times in which the flavors have to mature! I sampled 2 of the muffins.

They certainly were moist, but then they'd just been baked! I also cooled the muffins 10 minutes in the muffin pans and I'd baked the muffins 20 minutes at 400o F. They certainly are pretty muffins! The tops were golden and not overly browned! NOTE: I used vegetable oil as I do bake with that particular type of oil! I got 22 muffins out of this recipe! Thank you for sharing with Taste of Home! Note: These muffins are NOT gooey-the raspberries, being soft,
however, made the muffins QUITE fruity! Allowing the muffins to cool completely should allow them to firm up! Thank you for this recipe! I decided to rate this recipe as very good-a 4* recipe! I used the fluted muffin pan liners to bake the muffins-I basically use liners whenever I bake muffins and cupcakes! delowenstein"

"I would add some grated lemon peel or increase the extract next time."

"quick and eay, Next time I would add some lemon zest also as the lemon extract doesn't add much flavour"

"I used half the sugar, substituted applesauce for the oil, substituted a little bit of the flour with whole wheat flour, and didn't have half and half on hand, so I used melted butter and whole milk. They turned out great, my kids loved them!"
