This is a new recipe for me, found when I was looking for my orange muffin recipe for Bea Liles. They are a Taste of Home recipe by Robert Taylor of Mesa, Arizona. 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

Sorry it has taken so long to get back here.

Hi victoria, Thank you for your comment. I love them, but my husband is not too fond of them.

King, I'm so glad you liked them. I was very leary of the whole orange peel going in, but most people do like it.

Many thanks Vivian for sharing your yummy and easy recipe. I agree with your that if a fresh, fresh peel is grated, one must be careful not to add to much because it might result somewhat bitter, though I don't mind a strong flavor.

Just made my second batch of these, and they're delicious!
I made two small modifications to the original recipe:
- Used self-raising (instead of all-purpose/plain) flour
- Used just the orange zest, rather than the whole rind. (I.e. grated the orange peel down to the white, but no further). I think this probably gives it a slightly milder flavour,, but still tastes great.

Thanks for the recipe!

P.s. Why won't the site let me select a state/country that's not the USA?
