This Orange Pecan Muffin Recipe has been a favorite of mine for a very long time with fond memories attached to it.
When I moved into the house I am in now my budget was tight and I would visit local consignment shops to find things for my home that were reasonable. I needed everything. My mom and I would usually go on Saturday morning. We had one shop we visited regularly and the lady that owned it was an all around nice person. We visited one Saturday and she said “I am glad you stopped by I have something I think you will like.” She pulled out this box an elderly lady had dropped off filled with really old recipes and cookbooks. My mom was a big foodie too and we were in heaven. She gave us the box, she wanted someone to put it to good use.
This recipe was the first one I tried and I have been making it ever since. I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as we do.
I make them during the holidays in little mini loaf pans and given them as gifts. Everyone loves these little gems of goodness and asks for the recipe.
