A Tasty Surprise

My kids are absolutely in love with muffins and being that Fall has decided to disappear and be replaced by winter- it was time to turn on my oven.
We made one of our favorite muffins, so easy to make, and such a kid pleaser!
They are called Surprise muffins, because hidden in the center is a yummy dollop of homemade jam.
To make these, take any basic muffin recipe, fill the tin about 1/4 full and then put about 1tsp of jam (or as Esther says..."jelly jam") then top with some more muffin mix so that the jam is covered. Bake until done.

Warning: The jam in the center is HOT! Ask me how I know.

Here is the basic recipe I used.
2 Cups of flour
3tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cups sugar
1 egg
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup of oil

Mix well and bake in 350 degree oven.

Make sure to let me know if you make these for your family!

Oh yeah...I've made muffins somewhat like this before...

Except my recipe called for a dollop of jam AND a dollop of cream cheese. Mmmmmmm

I may have to make some tomorrow morning now...
