Muffins:
  • Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

  • Mix together orange juice, melted margarine and egg in a medium-size bowl.

  • Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Add the orange juice mixture to the well. With a wooden spoon, stir the liquid into the flour mixture just until combined and the flour mixture is evenly moistened. Gently stir in the drained mandarin orange segments.

  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, dividing batter equally, about 1/2 cup each.

Topping:
  • Gently stir together flake coconut, sugar, margarine and orange rind in a small bowl until well blended. Sprinkle topping evenly over top of each muffin.

  • Bake in 375 degree oven for 18 to 21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers of muffins comes out with a few crumbs clinging to the pick.

  • Let muffins stand in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Gently remove muffins from pan, loosening sides with small metal spatula if necessary. Let muffins cool upright on wire rack. Makes 12 muffins.
