Orange Marmalade Muffins

7 Apr

Earlier in the year my uncle sent me two delicious jars of orange marmalade he made from the oranges that grow in his yard. It’s great on scones and toast but I was trying to think of some other ways I could use it when I found this recipe. I had never thought to put the marmalade in the muffins! It is a delicious combination and they are fast and easy to throw together. I’m pretty sure you could also swap out the marmalade for other preserves if you have a surplus sitting around this summer and they would taste great too.

Marmalade Muffins
(Makes 12)

Adopted from Poppytalk

3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup marmalade or jam

Pre heat your oven to 375F and grease your muffin tins or line them. Whisk together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl add the milk, oil, vanilla, apple sauce, and honey and mix until well combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined, no more, so that the muffins stay tender. Gently swirl the marmalade into the batter and then fill your muffin tins. Bake until the muffins are just lightly golden on top, about 20 minutes. When the muffins have cool enough to handle take them out of the tins and let them cool the rest of the way on wire racks. Enjoy with a cup of tea and have a delicious breakfast!
