Orange Marmalade Muffins

Orange Marmalade Muffins with Brown Sugar Streusel


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sweet orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

streusel topping:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces


Preheat the oven to 375.  Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray, or line with 12 paper liners.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the orange marmalade, applesauce, oil, brown sugar, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir just until moistened.  Spoon batter into the cups, filling them 3/4 full.

In a small bowl, use a pastry cutter to blend the topping ingredients until coarse and crumbly.  Sprinkle topping over the batter and press down lightly with your fingers.

Bake for 18-22 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.  Serve warm, with orange marmalade on the side.


Yields 12 muffins.
