Lemon & Lime Marmalade and Poppy Seed Muffin

There are two types of people in this world – The ones that pick out yellow and green Skittles and the ones that pick out the red and purple (I find that orange is neutrally accepted by both parties). I am without a shadow of a doubt a lemon and lime Skittles type of girl. The sweet citrusy tang I love has been described by some (the red and purple people) as eating solidified balls of lemon Fairy Liquid. But what do they know? If like me your a citrus fiend, then you’ll love my Lemon & Lime Marmalade and Poppy Seed Muffin recipe!



300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g caster sugar
300g lemon and lime marmalade
250ml milk
2 eggs
120g melted butter

Preheat oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6. Line a muffin tray with 12 cases.

In a bowl, sift together self-raising flour, caster sugar, baking powder and poppy seeds.

In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, marmalade and milk until well combined, then mix through the melted butter.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until it’s just combined.

Divide the mixture into the 12 muffin cases.

Bake for 20/25 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack to fully cool.
