REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Great recipe. When I first mixed dry ingredients with wet, it was a little too dry to mix fully, so I added a tablespoon of milk. (Might be because I used half all-purpose and half wheat flour.) The batter was really thick, so I was nervous they might not turn out. However, I was happy to find that they came out fluffy and delicious.

I have made lots of recipes for muffins. This is by far the best. It worked the first time and is perfect just as written. I did use a large tablespoon of frozen OJ concentrate substituted for juice and zest, since I had no oranges.
