batter is in the cups, place an orange section on top of each and
sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar. CHEESE MUFFINS: Fold 1/2 cup
grated sharp yellow cheese into muffin mix with the last few strokes

breakfast. SURPRISE MUFFINS: Fill muffin cups 1/3rd full of batter.
Drop 1/2 t of your favorite jelly in center of batter. Add batter to
