  • 1 Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar (see Tip)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup fat-free milk

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat eighteen 1¾-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a small bowl, combine milk, egg, oil, and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in the tangerine sections.
  3. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups, filling each almost full. Bake about 14 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Serve warm.
