 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   c            Flour
    1 3/4   ts           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Allspice
      1/4   ts           Nutmeg
      1/2   c            Sugar
      1/3   c            Margarine
    1                    Egg, slightly beaten
      1/4   c            Milk
   10       oz           Mandarin orange tin, drained
                         TOPPING (optional)
      1/4   c            Melted butter
      1/4   c            Sugar
      1/2   ts           Cinnamon
 
   Note:  tin of broken segments is less expensive than
   whole segments. About a cup of fresh orange pieces
   could be used.
   
   Sift flour with other dry ingredients.  Cut in
   Margarine. Combine egg and milk, and add all at once
   to dry ingredients -- mix only until moistened.
   
   Fold in orange pieces and break them up more if batter
   seems to dry at first.  Fill greased muffin tins 3/4
   full.
   
   Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes.
   
   Remove from muffin tins while still warm.  Dip tops in
   melted butter and sugar-cinnamon mixture.  Makes 12
   large muffins.
