Southeast Meets Western Frontier: Marmalade Muffins

What to do after driving five hours? Prep your work meals for the week of course.  I took the easy way out for lunches, but for breakfast, I simplified Ree's Marmalade Muffin recipe. As always, feel free to follow the original recipe, but here's how I did it.  I didn't want to make the glaze so I added the brown sugar to the muffins instead and reduced the amount of granulated sugar used.

Preheat oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine the following in a medium size mixing bowl:

0.5 cup granulated sugar (1 c if you like it sweet)
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1.5 cups almond milk (unsweetened)
0.5 cup olive oil
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
and zest from 2 oranges

Mix on low until batter is smooth.

Use a regular 12 spot cupcake pan. Spray with Pam nonstick spray.  Add 0.5 cup batter to each. Bake for approximately 30 minutes. This part is tough to judge so be sure to use a toothpick to judge.  If any batter or crumbs stick to the toothpick,  bake a little longer.

The good news is that the finished product is absolutely delicious with morning coffee. Your home will also smell like a fresh orange and that's always a plus.


But before you jump right in, be careful of the orange zesting. It's not a good time to have a loose grip...
