Blueberry and mandarin orange muffin

We bought a carton of Mandarin Orange for celebrating Chinese New Year. With so many oranges still lying around in the kitchen, I went to look for recipes with orange in it. This is what we had for breakfast. My son likes it very much.

Blueberry Mandarin Orange Muffin
(makes 12)
Dry ingredients:

Fold in the blueberries. Scoop the batter into a greased muffin tin or line with paper cups in the muffin tray. Filling 2/3 full and bake for 18-20 minutes until cooked and golden. Serve warm or cool on wire rack.
