  1. The smells from the oven were driving the lot of us batty and could hardly wait for it to be morning so we could enjoy some of its orangey goodness! I decided to bake the batter in a bundt pan instead of muffins. I also made an orange glaze with 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 orange juice to drizzle over the top of this beauty. If I could give this recipe more stars, I would. Out of this world... perfect balance between sweet and bitter. I used Dundee's Seville Marmalade for this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!!
  2. great muffin! I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup due to the use of the 1 cup marmalade. As for that, I used a 'forest fruits' blend that is strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Sticky and delicious.
  3. These were lovely, a bit more like cupcakes than muffins, though! :) So sweet they will shock your back teeth at first, slightly sticky, very yummy. The technique threw me at first, because it is not the usual way I make muffins. Also, 1/2 a cup of batter was far too much for each muffin. I used 1/2 cup and only got 11 muffins, and they spread out on top, obviously too much batter for the cup. 1/3 cup or even a rounded 1/4 cup would be perfect (for my pan, YMMV). I did make a couple of substitutions: 1 c. whole wheat flour (for a little nutrition), 1/2 c. apricot preserves (I thought I had a whole cup of marmalade! :( the preserves didn't alter the flavor though, I believe), and I used raisins. Thank you for posting this recipe, I will be adding it to my other muffin recipes! Made for ZWT4.
  4. These are REALLY good! I subbed in 1 cup of whole wheat for 1 cup of the all-purpose flour. I made mine in a mini-muffin pan and got 36 little guys. I love the tartness every so often from the orange rind in the marmalade and the dried cranberries. I think next time I will add in some orange extract into the batter. Mmm. Thank you for a great low fat breakfast!
  5. Terrific muffins-I added white choc chips to make them more kid friendly and they were eaten straight from the oven after school. I love the caramel colouring of them and that bit of stickiness too - great snack so thanks to Brenda for posting - made for PAC07.
