For the muffin batter

4 cups plain flour
Generous 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 to 2 cups sweet orange marmalade (use 2 cups if you like the bitter marmalade taste, less if you don't)
1 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 whole eggs, beaten

For the topping

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Wheat germ, for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

For the muffin batter: Sift together the flour, granulated sugar and baking powder. Place the flour mixture in a mixing bowl. Use a pastry cutter to mix in the butter and shortening.

Mix the marmalade, orange juice and vanilla in a small bowl. Pour the marmalade mixture into the flour mixture. Pour the eggs into the bowl. Mix all ingredients together gently, using fewer than 10 large strokes.

For the topping: Mix the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a small bowl.

Fill muffin pans with batter. Sprinkle 1 heaping teaspoon of topping ingredients over each muffin. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon wheat germ over the top for extra crunch if desired.

Bake until done, 20 to 22 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and cool on a wire rack. Eat warm or at room temperature.
