Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin or line with paper muffin liners.
Stir together flour, wheatgerm, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and dark brown sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together butter, egg and buttermilk. Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients; mix just until combined. Fill prepared muffin cups half full with mixture. Make a depression in the centre of each muffin and drop in 1 teaspoon of jam. Cover jam with additional mixture.
Great recipe, really tasty, and superquick to make. I didn't have wheatgerm, so used 190g spelt/normal flour. I made 13 cupcakes out it. I will definitely make it again, good for a family treat, as it is a 'smaller' recipe (doesn't make a lot). I baked mine at 200 C for 15 minutes. Thank you! - 12 Sep 2014
Tried these today, absolutely delicious! I swapped the wholemeal flour for wholemeal spelt flour and the wheatgerm for oat bran but otherwise followed the recipe and all my family loved them. The only thing I would say is that I only had enough batter for 10 smallish muffins, definitely not 12. - 04 Feb 2012
