Lime Marmalade Muffins

Breakfast: 14-Jan-2010

The best marmalade muffins ever... been making these for quite a few years now... its very more-ish... the kids have just about eaten almost all of them... Loooovvveee the taste... I think because its a citrus flavored muffin, its very appetizing... :-)

Recipe was adapted from "Australian Quick 'n' Easy Cakes & Muffins Biscuits, Slices & More" by Robyn Martin, Recipe: Lime Marmalade Muffins, pg 8.

1. 2 cups plain flour
2. 4 tsp baking powder
Best Marmalade!
3. 1/4 cup raw caster sugar
4. 1/2 cup Lime Marmalade (Best is: Buderim brand)
5. 2 eggs
6. 1 cup milk
7. 50g butter - melted

1. You can substitute the plain flour & baking powder with 2 cups self-raising flour if you want!
2. Original recipe mentions you can use any marmalade but suggests lime marmalade as the best.
3. I used low-fat Lactose-free milk due to lactose intolerance in both myself & my daughter.
Just before baking
4. Original recipe uses 50g butter but I have changed that to 50g olive oil which measures to 1/4 cup.

1. Sift flour & baking powder into a bowl.
2. Stir in sugar. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
3. Beat marmalade, eggs, melted butter or oil & milk together.
4. Pour milk mixture into dry ingredients.
5. Mix to just moisten.
Just after baking
6. Three-quarter fill greased, deep muffin tins or jumbo muffin tins (I used small silicone muffin cups as pictured)
7. Bake at 200C for 15 mins for regular muffins or 20 mins for jumbo muffins or until cooked. (Mine took about 15 mins).

Recipe makes approximately 26 small muffins.

Enjoy a most yummy breakfast with these muffins!

Hi there... are you Lorraine from Not Quite Nigella....? I was sooo excited to see your post as I've been following your blog & have been gearing myself up to making your yummy looking chocolate peanut butter cup cheesecake for my own birthday cake... LOL! (I know how sad does that sound that I have to bake my own b'day cake as my relatives don't quite bake, the one that does lives on your side of the world in Sydney & is a chef...)

Thanks for leaving a comment though... & yes, they those lime marmalade muffins tastes absolutely YUM! :-)
