What caught my eye about this recipe was the orange marmalade in the muffin as well as in the glaze. This has a very subtle orange flavor, the inside of the muffin was nice and moist. The glaze is a very nice addition to this muffin. Very nice indeed. I made my muffins in a jumbo muffin pan and got 5 muffins, I also made the frosting into more of a glaze by adding 2 tablespoons of milk instead of 2 teaspoons, I had lots of glaze left over so the next time I’ll only make half the frosting recipe.
The muffins turned a nice golden brown on top and had a slight little crisp to them, which went well with the moistness of the inside.
Look at those nice pieces of orange marmalade in that glaze! I really enjoyed these, I hope you do too!
