The freshness of the blood orange juice adds an extra brightness to these muffins and the surprise of raspberry preserves in the middle make them fun to eat, too!

Top Review by Brutus

These are awesome! Everyone in my house loved them, and I'm making them now for a second time. I used our homemade black raspberry jam last time, and it's running low so I picked up some blackcurrant preserves and am excited to see how that turns out. Thanks for a great recipe, these are a great breakfast on the go for my morning walk to work.
