Muffin Monday – Mandarin Orange Muffins

Posted by Kathryn on September 4, 2011 in Muffin Monday, Recipes |

Welcome to Muffin (and Cupcake) Monday!

My son was hinting around that he wanted me to make some more muffins with a cinnamon-sugar topping. (He really doesn’t ask for much!) So, I whipped these up for him. They seemed to hit the spot!

Mandarin Orange Muffins



1-1/2 cups all-purpose baking mix

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup milk

1 11-oz can of mandarin oranges, drained and diced


Spray butter

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat muffin tins with non-stick spray.


Combine baking mix, sugar, nutmeg and allspice in a large bowl (Bowl #1).

Stir egg, butter, milk and mandarin oranges together in another bowl (Bowl #2).

Stir liquid ingredients (Bowl #2) into dry ingredients (Bowl #1).

Spoon batter into muffin tins filling each tin 3/4 full and making sure orange bits are evenly distributed.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.


Combine sugar and cinnamon in cereal-size bowl.

While muffins are still warm, spray tops with butter and roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture.

Makes 10-12 muffins.
