    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 12 cup muffin tray or line with muffin cases.
    2. In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
    3. In a separate bowl whisk together the vegetable oil, orange juice, buttermilk, vanilla and eggs.
    4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just blended. Some lumps are okay.
    5. Fill the prepared muffin cases halfway with the batter.
    6. Centre: Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture onto each half-full muffin cup.
    7. Spoon batter over the cinnamon mixture so that the muffin cups are 2/3 full.
    8. Streusel Topping: In a small bowl mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and the butter to make a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this generously over the tops of the muffin batter.
    9. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the crown of a muffin comes out clean. Cool in the tray over a wire rack.

    Brilliant recipe, even my fussy daughter ate them. Had no buttermilk so used skimmed instead, no other changes needed. Making more in the morning - 16 Aug 2013
