These are one of my all-time favorite muffins. I have been making them for years. Delicious for breakfast, brunch or an anytime snack. The orange and coconut work so well together. Wonderful recipe. A must try!

This is like a taste of summer. I did add a little bit more orane juice as my batter was really thick. Also only fill the cupcake halfway. I did 2/3 like I do for cupcakes and only got 9 muffins and the topping cooked all over the pan. So I suggest you only fill them up halfway.

I just made this recipe and added a bit of pecans and coconut flakes to batter. It is delicious! :) I will continue to tweak it to suit my taste. It was a bit sweet for my taste but I attribute that to added coconut. Next time I bake it, I won't add anything

I have made these muffins several times. My family adores them. People at work rave over them. The combination of coconut and the mandarin orange works well together. They turn out moist, and are simple to make.
