This morning I needed to take something
to a meeting and I looked over at a stack
of recipes in file folders on the kitchen
table. One of the folders was marked
Lemon, Lime or Orange Muffins.
This recipe is for Orange Marmalade
Muffins and came from Linda Colantino
is all about her passions for dolls,
antiques, tea, baking
and a love
for Tasha Tudor.
Marmalade Muffins and I do think
they would be lovely with a cup of tea
or at breakfast time:
1 3/4 cup flour, 3 tsp baking power, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 2 Tb sugar, 2 Tb brown sugar,
1/2 tsp salt, 1 large egg (I used 2 small), 1 cup milk, 4 Tb melted butter, 1 Tb grated orange zest and 7 Tb orange marmalade
Makes 1 dozen at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes - I did 15 min in a convection oven
Mix sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda,
sugar, brown sugar and salt
Beat egg slightly, then beat in milk. Mix
butter and zest into the egg/milk mixture.
Make a well in dry ingredients - add all the liquid mixture at once.
Stir mixture with wooden spoon - 10-15 strokes. do not over mix! Batter will be lumpy. Spoon 2 Tb batter into bottom of 12 pre-greased muffin tin - add 1 1/2 tsp marmalade and top off with batter to
fill 3/4 full.
Bake in center oven rack
