  1. Love the Sunshine Muffins and I have company coming soon so they are in the oven. Had to get the recipe on line as my recipe books are all packed! Thanks for being there.

  2. A dear friend made these muffins when she invited me for coffee. I have IBS so she chose this recipe just for me. They are wonderful and I look forward to making them today, if possible.

  3. I love this muffin recipe and have misplaced my Best of Bridge. Are they still available somewhere? I was so stoked to find this recipe online. Thank you. I have been using this set of cookbooks for over 20 years…..thank you

  4. Made Sunshine Muffins today. I have always used fresh blueberries in place of the cranberries. Love the smell of my kitchen today. They are amazing. 5 stars! I am so glad I found this online. Need to either find my cookbooks or buy new ones!

    • Hi Joan, the Sunshine muffin recipe will yield about 36 mini muffins. Bake at the same temperature, but adjust the baking time to 10 – 12 minutes, check the oven at 10 minutes to avoid overbaking. Enjoy your mini Sunshines!

    • Hi Rob, yes, the whole orange, including the peel goes into the muffin recipe. The muffins are delicious. Enjoy!
