Marmalade Muffins

22 Sep



Hungry? Had brekkie yet?

How about a marmalade muffin, muffin? MIL left two great jars of home made marmalade behind when she came to visit and I’m steadily making my way through the thick, fabulously bitter jelly. Good glaze for moist, ricotta-laced muffins too!

1 3/4 cups plain flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
2  teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup ricotta
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
Rind and juice of 1 orange
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Your fav marmalade

Chuck dry ingredients into a bowl. Combine wet ingredients (rind counts as wet in my book) in a jug or something and add to bowl with dry ingredients. Stir til it barely comes together then spoon into muffin tins (I’m greedy so this mix makes 9 muffins for me). Add a dollop of marmalade on each one. It will spread as the cakes cook. Bake at about 190 for 20 mins or so. They may still seem a tiny bit gooey when warm but cool to a dense crumb so fear not. Just gobble. Likely that a cup of tea will be required too.
