Chunky Marmalade Muffins

Saturday, 30 October 2010

It's Saturday morning and there's more time to spend in enjoying a leisurely breakfast . . .

Maybe you want something large and indulgent like Eggs, Beans and Chips . . .

Or Pancakes . . .

maybe even an indulgent Sour Cream and Blueberry Breakfast Cake . . .

Perhaps a tasty Omelette . . .

Or maybe you just want something like a tasty muffin . . . light, scrummy, buttery . . .

And just perfect with that morning cuppa. Breakfast in your hand . . . the portable breakfast . . . the perfect breakfast in bed breakfast . . .

These scrummy breakfast muffins combine two of my favourite breakfast items . . . a moist and buttery baked muffin . . . and tangy thick cut Orange Marmalade!!

Bet you can't eat just one!!

*Chunky Marmalade Muffins*
Makes 12 medium muffins
Printable Recipe

Delicious, tangy, melt in the mouth. What more could you ask for?

150g plain flour (a generous cup)
150g of whole wheat flour (a generous cup)
1 TBS baking powder
a large pinch of fine sea salt
280ml of milk (1 1/4 cups)
2 tsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1 large free range egg, beaten
4 TBS melted butter
150g of thick cut marmalade (1/2 cup)
plus a bit extra to top (optional)

Preheat the oven to 220*C/425*F/ gar mark 7. Butter a deep 12 cup muffin tin well, or line with paper liners. Set aside.

Whisk the flours, baking powder and sea salt together. Whisk the milk, orange juice, beaten egg, and melted butter together. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the liquid ingredients. Mix together quickly, without over mixing. You want a coarse, slightly streaky batter. Stir the marmalade through with a fork to loosen and then fold it into the muffin batter. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups. Using a teaspoon dab some extra marmalade on top of the muffins. (optional)

Bake for 20 minutes, until well risen and golden brown. A toothpick inserted in the centre should come out clean!


  1. These look so delicious with that marmalade on top. What a sunny way to start the morning.

  3. My Granny would LOVE these. As she always said, she could 'eat one more spoon of marmalade than a pig'!

  4. I love so much these kind of sweeties!

  6. Soon~

    I love marmalade in baked goods..even on meats and in salsas..They look great Marie..we're both citrusy today:)

  7. Not sure if you still check comments on this post but do these muffins really not have any sugar added to them? Just want to make sure it isn't a typo before I try making them. Thanks in advance.

  8. Hi Monkey, my recipe notes are in the bedroom and my husband is still asleep. Once he gets up I will check them and get back to you on this. Sorry for the wait!

  9. Monkey there is no mention of sugar at all in my recipe notes. If you are concerned that they might not be sweet enough, you can add 3 to 4 TBS of soft light brown sugar. Let me know how you get on! xxoo

  10. PS - whisk the sugar in with the flour before you add the wet ingredients!
