Marmalade and Nutmeg Streusel Muffins

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Marmalade can make anything go from good to great, the tang and sharpness it adds to bakes. Add in hazelnut streusel with nutmeg and you’ve got yourself a little something special. These muffins could be described as mega, a simple orange sponge with a middle of marmalade topped off with the crunchiest of toasted hazelnuts, nutmeg spice and sugar. A great treat for anytime of the day, but for breakfast with a dollop of yogurt, you honestly can’t go wrong.
