Directions

  1. 1 of 1 Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 12 standard-size muffin-pan cups with nonstick vegetable-oil cooking spray or line cups with paper liners.

Muffins:

  1. 1 of 4 Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. 2 of 4 Mix together orange juice, melted margarine and egg in a medium-size bowl.
  3. 3 of 4 Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Add the orange juice mixture to the well. With a wooden spoon, stir the liquid into the flour mixture just until combined and the flour mixture is evenly moistened. Gently stir in the drained mandarin orange segments.
  4. 4 of 4 Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, dividing batter equally, about 1/2 cup each.

Topping:

  1. 1 of 3 Gently stir together flake coconut, sugar, margarine and orange rind in a small bowl until well blended. Sprinkle topping evenly over top of each muffin.
  2. 2 of 3 Bake in 375 degree oven for 18 to 21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers of muffins comes out with a few crumbs clinging to the pick.
  3. 3 of 3 Let muffins stand in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Gently remove muffins from pan, loosening sides with small metal spatula if necessary. Let muffins cool upright on wire rack. Makes 12 muffins.
