When our whole family has the day off together, we like to start our day with muffins for breakfast. This recipe made me a runner-up winner in the baked goods division at our county fair.

These were very tasty. I used sour cream instead of yogurt as that's what I had on hand. I made a half-batch and made 9 muffins (filled almost to the top). They rose nicely and had beautiful golden-brown tops. These taste great as-is, but I also made a glaze of powdered sugar, orange juice and orange juice concentrate to drizzle over the tops. Thanks for a delicious breakfast treat! Read More

Tasty muffins, I had to decrease the cooking time to 12-13 minutes, my first batch were slightly burnt on the bottom at 15 minutes. Read More

I was sceptical about yoghurt in muffins- never seen that before, but they were great! I made larger muffins, and got 12 from this mixture. Read More

I cut this recipe in 1/2, which still yielded me 10 good sized muffins. Otherwise, followed the recipe, but made a glaze with powdered sugar and OJ to put on the top. These muffins are some of the best we have had. The orange flavor with the poppy seeds was delicious. The batch I made was gone in a few days, and they have already been requested again. Read More

Yummy muffins and love anything with yoghurt - it ia magical ingredient. These actually are rich enough to be referred to as a cupcake.......so definitely a treat rather than an everyday breakfast item. Good........ Read More
