Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
Prepare the muffin tins either by greasing and flouring them, or using a non-stick cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
In a second bowl, combine the oil, egg, orange juice, zest and apricots. Mix well.
Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated.
Drop a small spoonful of the mixture into each muffin tin, filling to just below the top of the tin. Bake the muffins for 6 minutes, rotate the tins, and bake another 6 minutes until golden brown.
Allow the muffins to cool slightly, then unmold them. Cool to room temperature. Using a paring knife, cut on an angle through the top of each muffin and remove some of the centre. Fill each with a piece of Caronzola cheese and top with a pecan half. If you're pressed for time, just cut some of the top off each muffin, add the cheese, and top with a pecan.
Serve immediately or cover and let sit unrefrigerated up to 4 hours.
