"These muffins did not turn out looking like the picture, so not an attractive appearance in my opinion. Flavor is good, texture is average. If I made them again I would add a crump topping to make them more appealing."

"I have made these many times over the years. The first time I made them I didn't have any walnuts, marmalade or orange extract, so I omitted them. The muffins were still delicious, and I've made them the same way ever since"
