From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

If you dont have 1-3/4-inch muffin cups, line sixteen 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. Prepare batter as directed. Spoon 1 tablespoon batter into each prepared muffin cup. Add 1 teaspoon of marmalade and another tablespoon of batter. (You will only use about 1/3 cup marmalade.) Bake about 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Frost with Powdered Sugar Icing. Add a cherry as directed above. (You will only need 16 cherries.)

Powdered Sugar Icing

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl stir together powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and vanilla. Stir in enough additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to reach drizzling consistency.
