    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 12 hole muffin tin or line with paper cases.
    2. In a medium bowl, stir together 250g flour, 150g caster sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, orange juice, buttermilk, vanilla and eggs. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just blended. Some lumps are okay.
    3. Fill the prepared muffin holes halfway with the batter. Combine the dark brown soft sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon; sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture onto each half-full muffin hole. Spoon batter over the cinnamon mixture so that the muffin holes are 2/3 full. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 14 tablespoons flour, 4 tablespoons caster sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and the butter to make a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this generously over the tops of the muffin batter.
    4. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes in the preheated oven, until a skewer inserted into the crown of a muffin, comes out clean. Cool in the tin over a wire rack.

    For some reason, the muffins went totally flat. As I followed all instructions I'm not going to give it another try. - 29 Jan 2016
