Orange Pumpkin Muffins
Scottish Oatmeal (fine ground oatmeal) is a good choice for muffins which are complemented with moist ingredients. The temptation to lick the batter spoon is a good hint that this is a tasty (and chunky) muffin recipe. Serve with slices of fresh orange to enrich the presentation.
