Jam Doughnut Muffins
Jam doughnut muffins
Ingredients :
  • 200 g of butter
  • 200 g of caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 ml soured cream
  • 300 g of self raising flour
  • 12 tsp of seedless jam of your choice

' These are not traditional muffins and they are not traditional doughnuts either, what they are doesn't really matter because they are simple and delicious muffin cakes filled with jam.... ' 

Method : 
  • Preheat the oven to 180 c
  • Line a standard 12 cup muffin tray with paper cases
  • Add the softened butter and the sugar into a mixing bowl and combine with a wooden spoon or an electric whisk so that it is light and fluffy.
  • Whisk in the eggs and soured cream. The mixture may look like it has curdled but this is normal.
  • Sift in the self raising flour and fold into mixture until fully combined.
  • Add a 25 g or just over a tablespoon of mixture into each paper case and level it out with the back of a spoon.
  • Make a well in the middle of the mixture, just deep enough not to go through to the bottom.
  • spoon in  a tsp of jam into centre of each.
  • Cover the jam with another  2 table spoon of mixture or enough to bring it almost to the top of the case. Then level this out with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 15 - 20 minutes so that the muffins are a golden brown colour. You should be able to insert a knife into the muffin and it should come out clean if they are cooked.
  • Allow to cool and remove paper cases and roll each cake in caster sugar to finish them off.
