Probably not the most extraordinary looking muffins you’ve ever seen but these muffins were delicious. Really I just wanted an excuse to use some nectarines that were quite ripe and heading toward composting given a few more days, but we all loved them so much I will definitely be making them again. These muffins would make a great addition to a packed lunch, not entirely healthy but better perhaps than a chocolate bar….. and hey they have fruit and marmalade in so you could have them for breakfast too! 😉

Nectarine and Orange Muffins

 Take two bowls. In one bowl mix the “Dry Mix”;

  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

In the other bowl whisk together “Wet Mix”;

  • 100g dairy free margarine (like Pure) , very soft or melted
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 75g light brown sugar
  • 125g white sugar
  • 150g marmalade
  •  250g chopped nectarines (about 3)
  • 125ml rice milk

Oven @ 180 c

Make a hollow in the dry mix and gradually mix the wet mix into this until everything I combined. Spoon this into cupcake cases about ¾ high. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 12-15 minutes until golden. When you put a knife into them it will come out clean. Leave to cool completely before icing.

15 to 20 minutes until golden.


Lovely with a cuppa tea.
