These sounded and looked so good that I had to copy them off to try. I just happen to have several bags of fresh picked oranges from Southern Texas just ready for this.

Much easier than I thought and as you can see, they are very pretty.

I liked them with and without the raisins. My husband thought they needed to be a little swee

    O M G VIVIAN!!!!!!!! They sound so good. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I'll try them soon. The recipe sounds like what I've been looking for. I'll try other orange recipes if I see any posted, too. We love anything orange and I've never had or made an orange muffin. I may throw in a drop or two of orange extract, too. I'll let you know how they are. I hope to make them in a couple of weeks. I want to try Bonnie Dare's orange cake icing on them, too.
