I've used both olive oil and vegetable oil there is no flavour difference for me.
Cooking time depends on the size of your muffins.
If you like a slightly fluffier batch of muffins use half fresh orange juice and half milk, you don't notice the orange juice OR
you can use soured milk (add 1 table spoon of lemon juice to 1 cup of milk) but you may need a little extra sugar, these are not an overly sweet muffin.
