I found this recipe in the local newspaper. The cupcakes are moist and not too sweet. Very good with cream cheese frosting. Adapted from Good Housekeeping's "Great Baking"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 18 muffin cups with cupcake papers.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, with the mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and creamy, about 5 minutes.
  6. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  7. Beat in marmalade.
  8. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  9. Beat just until combined.
  10. Pour batter evenly into prepared cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  11. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

  13. Frost as desired.

Nice cupcakes! They are lovely & moist, with the marmelade taste coming through nicely. I frosted them with a cream cheese frosting to which I added some marmelade too. Thanks!

These were so fast and easy to prepare!! Used low-fat marmalade and milk. Used recipe #16017 as frosting. Thanks MicDoc! :)

MicDoc these are wonderful little cupcakes. Like rhondalynne I put cream cheese frosting on mine and they combination was scrumptious. My husband doesnt like fruit, orange being no exception but he really liked these and his rating was 4 stars. But as I thought they were 5, I'm giving them 5 stars. I'll definately make these again.
