Merry christmas muffins

Happy New Year to everyone ! I haven't got enough time for posting before Christmas that's way you can see this recipe now. Those muffins were baked according two muffin recipes. I liked both so much I couldn't make up my mind which one to bake. For muffin batter I used recipe from this website while the topping comes from this blog.They were very tasty, soft and moisture.

Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 100g melted butter
  • 275 ml buttermilk
  • 200g sugar
  • 300g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g fresh cranberries
  • 100g marzipan
  • 50g little pieces of candied orange peel
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
 Ingredients for topping:

  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp brawn sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp soft butter
Prepare topping first. Place all ingredients into small bowl and mix them with fingers until crumble. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases. 

Melt the butter and set aside. Dice the marzipan into small cubes. 

Into big bowl sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cinnamon, whisk them together. In separate jug whisk the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients, then add the marzipan, cranberries and orange peel. Stir everything together until all ingredients all combined. Spoon the batter into muffin cases, sprinkle with earlier prepared topping and bake for 20-25 minutes. When ready transfer to the wire rack to cool down.

Ingredients for icing:
  • 1/3 mug of icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
Place those ingredients into a jug and whisk with a fork. 
Gently drizzle over each muffin top.

Enjoy !
