Jam muffins

    1 hour 20 min

    You can make all kinds of different muffins with this muffin recipe. Use a simple strawberry jam for a family pleasing classic, or get creative - I tried a peach and amaretto jam, but other flavours of jam taste just as good.

    Tasted nice. However turned out like scones. Either something is missing or wayyyy too much flour.  -  07 Mar 2018


    I looked at several recipes for jam muffins before choosing this one, as it was lower in sugar than others. I did substitute some of the flour for dessicated coconut. They were well risen, soft and fluffy and will def make again.  -  13 Aug 2016
