Dads are strange creatures. Between their embarrassing dancing, cringe-worthy jokes and their fascination with sports or obscure hobbies, it’s hard to know what to think of them sometimes.


When it comes to Father’s Day, this can make buying presents a little tricky. Do they really need another football mug? Do they really need another pair of socks? Boring!


If you’re struggling with ideas for gifts, why not bake dad something instead? Bringing him a tray of freshly baked muffins is sure to get you in the good books, without another dull last-minute gift.

Chocolate Chip Marmalade Muffins Recipe


To make these delicious Chocolate Chip Marmalade Muffins, simply follow the recipe below!



  • 230g plain flour
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200ml orange juice
  • 75g butter (melted)
  • 6 tbsp marmalade
  • 1 large egg
  • 100g dark or milk chocolate chips (plus extra for decoration)



  1. Preheat your oven – 190 degrees for conventional ovens or 170 degrees for fan ovens – and line a 12-hole muffin or cupcake tin with paper cases.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together your flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  3. In a separate jug or small bowl, whisk together your orange juice, melted butter, marmalade and egg to combine into a fairly smooth mixture.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, along with the chocolate chips, and use a large spoon or spatula to very gently mix everything together. The less you stir, the lighter and fluffier your muffins will be!
  5. Use a large spoon or ice-cream scoop to divide the muffin mixture between the 12 cases.
  6. Pop the tray into the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes until risen, golden and a skewer inserted into the centre can be cleanly removed.
  7. Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for around 10 minutes before removing them and allowing them to cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. Enjoy!
