Sticky Orange Muffins

Sticky Orange Muffins

2 oranges

1/4 C. honey

2 C. flour

1/2 C. uncooked oatmeal (not instant)

1 T. baking powder

1 t. salt

1/2 C. sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten

2/3 C. milk

5 1/2 T. butter, melted

Grease a 12-cup muffin tin. Grate the rind from the oranges (orange part only). Set aside. With a small sharp knife, remove all remaining peel and, if necessary, trim the oranges all around so that the slices will fit into the bottom of your muffin tin cups. Cut into slices about 1/4-inch thick. Pick out all seeds. Place about 1 teaspoon honey in bottom of each muffin cup. Top each with an orange slice.

In a large mixer bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir with a fork to mix. Add grated orange rind, eggs, milk and melted butter. Stir just until mixed.

Spoon batter over orange slices, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake at 400° F. for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.
