Used different ingredients. Use black currant jam instead if you prefer - 28 Aug 2010


These Jam Muffins are lovely and would make them again my only 2 flaws are that they are a little heavy but yet light and my last flaw is the mixture is a little runny. but overall i give them 8/10 they are simply brilliant!!! x - 19 Nov 2010
