Orange-Raisin Sticky Muffins

These finger-licking muffins have the appeal of old-fashioned sticky buns without the fuss of yeast dough. Their delightful blend of flavors comes from walnuts, raisins, cinnamon and sunny orange zest. They're a sure morning eye-opener and a treat anytime. -Sandi Ritchey, Silverton, Oregon

    We substituted Craisins for the raisins. We tried various ways of making over the recipe (doubling the topping, mixing the raisin part with the muffin part) but it is perfect just the way it is! :)
