Semolina Orange Marmalade Muffin

This Semolina orange marmalade muffin is delectably good!

I am a crazy marmalade fan! To such a extent that I got my own recipe for marmalade and make it to use for my cakes and other baking. So, I have used the same here. I was confused between cupcakes and muffins, didn’t know which to try. So, I checked the difference and saw that muffin is a form of bread that is typically had for breakfast. I thought the marmalade will go well with it. Also, muffins can be either sweet or savory.

I was going for something in the middle and not too sweet and not spicy either. So, the recipe given gives, mildly sweet muffins that are scrumptious to have for breakfast and since it is made from semolina , it is not heavy on the stomach . But, if you like more sweet and more moist then you can add 2 tablespoons of orange sugar syrup and top it with orange marmalade glaze. Do let me know how it came out for you!

I made 6 muffins and a small bundt cake out of this recipe. If you don’t have marmalade you can always use just the orange juice and zest directly. Check my How to make Orange Marmalade Recipe in cooker?
