I submitted this recipe to my Ward cookbook. Someone made them recently and told me that they were not very good...too much oatmeal. I feel bad that they ended up in two places with the wrong amount of oatmeal. I am re posting this recipe so if you saved it or tried it you can make them right. I just made them today so I know the recipe is as it should be and I still think they are good. I also took a dozen to the lady who discovered my error and ate 6 myself so they have been thoroughly tested. Thanks, Janet and sorry to anyone who made them with my mistake.
The recipe makes 2 dozen medium muffins. 1 C. of cranberries is good and nuts too if you are so inclined.
Heat 1 cup of milk until hot not boiling add 1 C. quick oatmeal and let sit while you measure everything else into another bowl.
1 T Grated orange peel
1 C Fresh Orange juice
1/2 C. oil
1 C. Brown sugar
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Soda
2 1/4 C. Flour
Add oatmeal and mix until everything is moistened.
Bake 350 for 15 min. in well greased muffin tins
Juice another small orange or 1/2 of large - add 1 tsp. grated peel and 2 T. melted butter with enough Powdered sugar for a thin frosting. Frost hot.
