Orange Marmalade Muffins
So here is muffin recipe #4 from my 750 muffin recipe cookbook. Now these muffins may look plain from the outside but once you take a bite out of these moist, fluffy muffins, your whole view on orange muffins will change. Okay that’s not really true but what I’m trying to get across is that these muffins burst with such amazing orange flavor because you get three hits of the orange, from the zest, the juice, and the marmalade. It’s wonderfully overwhelmingly orange, and if you’re an orange-lover like myself, you’ll fall in love with these muffins as well!
Orange Marmalade Muffins (adapted from Camilla Saulsbury in 750 Best Muffin Recipes ):
Yields 12 muffins
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup orange marmalade
- Zest of 3 oranges
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners; set aside. (If you don’t want to use paper liners, you could coat a muffin pan with cooking spray instead.)
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, marmalade, orange zest and vanilla.
Whisk in the orange juice and butter until well-combined.
Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.
Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray.
Place into oven and bake for 16-21 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
