Orange Marmalade Poppy Seeds Muffins

This is one of my favourite muffins but somehow I have never gotten to bake this until now. I googled "orange poppy seeds muffin" and a recipe from came on top. It has pretty good reviews so I decided to use it with some modifications. Most of the comments left were they could use more orange juice and rind hence I added more of those and I tried adding marmalade to give it more orange taste. I think it worked rather well. When I bake this again, I might add another teaspoon of orange rind just to see if it make it better  but I am quite happy with how it turned out.

    I have a huge container of marmalade that I thought kids would love to eat instead of all-time favorite blueberry jam, but they somehow didn't like it. I'm going to use it for making this muffins. I know they like oranges and it was so unexpected that they didn't like it. I actually want to eat this muffin so bad despite our marmalade issue. :-) Looks so yum!!

    I was actually quite surprise my kids love marmalade because I thought they might not like the rind. They would even have it with cheese. Hope your kids will like the muffin. You can use chocolate chips instead of poppy seeds to be more kids friendly :).
