These muffins were not the best ones I have ever made, but they were surprizingly good for what little amount of time was required to make them, and for so few ingredients. I added a few of my own touches to it- applesauce instead of oil, 4 tbs. jam(strawberry) IN the batter, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract in the batter as well. It is important to let the muffins sit for about 2 min in the pan before taking them out so the jam will not spill out the bottom. I drizzled a mixture of honey, vanilla, and red food coloring on the top of my muffins right after they came out. It really dressed them up. I will make these again!


My mom used to make jam-filled muffins. I hadn't thought about it for a long time, then I found this recipe today. I halved the recipe so I could make 6 muffins in the toaster oven and not heat up the whole kitchen by using the big oven. (It's August!) I used half white wheat flour, Splenda instead of sugar, red currant and black currant preserves, and chopped hazelnuts on top. When assembling the muffins, put a bit of batter in the bottom of the muffin cup, then add a dab of jam (not too much), then top with more batter. Try to "seal" in the jam with the batter so it doesn't boil out. Don't put in too much jam or it will boil over and burn and stick in the pan. These were really good! It's not an overly sweet, caky muffin, but a more traditional muffin that's slightly sweet. (Like how scones are supposed to be only slightly sweet, not the icky cake-cookie concoctions at Starbuck's--too sweet!) The real sweetness comes from the jam inside, all hot and melty. Let the muffins cool a minute or two before you bite into it...keep the kids away for a bit, you know they're going to grab 'em right away. The jam inside is HOT and you don't want to burn your mouth. YUMMY breakfast muffin and super easy, with ingredients you have on hand. It's a keeper!


everyone complained this recipe was bland. I found the quick and easy solution was a small amount of chocolate chips. It was perfect!I used raspberry jam. They were delicious and with 10 seconds in the microwave it was like they were fresh out of the oven.
