Magic Muffins – Pinapple Marmalade

By: Julie

Serves:  Makes 12 extra large muffins

Time: 35min.  10 min prep, 20 min bake

Oh yes I did.  I put marmalade in the magic muffin mix.  And do you know what happened?  Magic.

This is my new ultimate brunch muffin.  It screams of orange juice and eggs and bacon and some delicious quiche.  If the queen was coming for tea I would feed her these muffins and little cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off.

I can now whip these muffins up in less than 10 min.  You can do it too!

You Will Need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of your favourite marmalade
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 tsp orange extract
  • 1/4 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups of diced fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup shredded apple

Mix the Muffins

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick olive oil spray.  Whisk eggs, marmalade, honey, vanilla, applesauce, extracts and zest together in a large bowl.  In a separate medium bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together.  Mix into wet ingredients until dry ingredients are wet.  Do not over-mix.  Fold in pineapple and apple. Using an ice-cream scoop, completely fill muffin cups with batter.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until a wooden skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Prepare for the Queens visit.
