Ingredients
  • Muffin Batter:
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Generous 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups sweet orange marmalade (use 2 cups if you like the bitter marmalade taste, less if you don't)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 whole eggs, beaten
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Wheat germ, for sprinkling
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the muffin batter: Sift together the flour, granulated sugar and baking powder. Place the flour mixture in a mixing bowl. Use a pastry cutter to mix in the butter and shortening.

Mix the marmalade, orange juice and vanilla in a small bowl. Pour the marmalade mixture into the flour mixture. Pour the eggs into the bowl. Mix all ingredients together gently, using fewer than 10 large strokes.

For the topping: Mix the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a small bowl.

Fill muffin pans with batter. Sprinkle 1 heaping teaspoon of topping ingredients over each muffin. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon wheat germ over the top for extra crunch if desired.

Bake until done, 20 to 22 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and cool on a wire rack. Eat warm or at room temperature.
