This is an old recipe that I decided to improve upon—and I like this version so much better! Sometimes, I'll make lemon corn muffins by substituting lemon peel if I don't happen to have any oranges on hand. —Hope Huggins, Santa Cruz, California

"These were excellent. My grandmother used to make orange corn muffins so I was looking for a similar recipe. I did change it a little I used half a cup of orange juice and half a cup of milk. It really helps boost the orange flavor. ??"

"I don't own muffin tins so I made an 8x8 pan of cornbread. It baked 5 extra minutes. Yum! It has a very subtle orange taste. Maybe next time I'd add a bit more zest. I love the fact that the cornbread isn't too sweet."

"A perfect muffin with a cup of tea or coffee. Very light and refreshing. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. The flavor is perfectly balanced. Thank you!"
