Great muffins for a holiday breakfast, or to serve with hot tea. The original recipe appeared several years ago in Bon Appetit, but has had a couple of changes. This recipe is from the talented Sidney Carlisle's article about Holiday Desserts Worth the Calories.
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Place paper liners in a twelve-cup muffin pan.
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, eggs, melted butter and orange peel, mixing well. Stir in the mincemeat.
- Add the flour, stirring just until blended. Do not over-mix. Divide the batter among the muffin cups.
- Bake about 25 minutes, until the muffins are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.
- Makes 12 muffinss.
