Jam Doughnut Muffins

Its been a while! 2 weeks, the Easter period. I have been spending it in sunny(-ish) Cornwall, enjoying the seaside and cream teas. It was a very nice holiday and after giving up chocolate for Lent it was gorgeous to enjoy my eggs :) I hope everyone else had a lovely Easter too and it is good to be back blogging once more.
Whilst enjoying the Cornish cream teas, I was re-introduced to jam. This sounds weird, I realise, but true. For a long time I didn’t like jam of any sort and refused to enjoy it. Then I became the sort of person who only likes jam in certain situations – in jam tarts yes, spread on toast no. Now, I am a full jam fan and these muffins are the perfect way to show this new found love.
DSCF6721I still don’t touch blackcurrant jam. But these were made with delicious raspberry – by far my favourite flavour. From the outside, these muffins look sort of plain, not very exciting. But open it up… DSCF6729and you are met by a juicy raspberry swirl. Plus from the top… DSCF6719 the sweet sugar-dipped crown of each muffin is revealed. Suddenly these are a whole lot more delish. Gorgeous! Made especially for my sister’s 18th as she loves doughnuts and every birthday girl deserves a little bit of what they love. You can find the recipe here and then quickly get baking!

Wow, I like the idea of making doughnut and muffin in one pan, then comes that surprise of delicious jam inside it. How scrumptious Lucy!

I've never made muffins or cake with jam but I've had store-bought packaged ones they sell in Morocco. Great idea!

I'm glad to hear you had such a wonderful and relaxing holiday, Lucy. These jam muffins are a brilliant idea -- they're gorgeous!

Glad you had a good vacation and the muffins look wicked good. Raspberry is my favorite jam too. When I was a kid we had a raspberry patch in the back yard and my mom would make jam. Good times.

I've never had a 'donughnut muffin'! ...My life feels so sad and empty now-I've obviously been missing an essential to living well!
I love rasberry jam too! :)
