Jam Doughnut Muffins

Taste like doughnuts, shape like muffins?

okay, be it a half doughnut or half muffin , i find this recipe from Nigella Lawson is incredibly good. Each doughnut muffin here is filled with some jam and once the baking it's done while it's still warm, roll them over some melted butter and some sugar. Delicious! There is no need to take your piping bag and tip out to pipe in the jam on the cooked muffin, here we fill  the muffin case with some batter, follow by the jam and again top with more batter and bake .

I have baked kind of similar muffins couple of months back, Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins , a different recipe. I would think this Nigella's doughnut muffins are fluffier and tender in texture compared to the those cinnamon sugar muffins. Yes, they are quite like doughnuts but so much easier to make !

As i was typing this,post,  i just received a message from Joyce reminding of today's post. Gosh! I thought it's tomorrow! Sorry if some of you have followed the date written on the side bar of the blog. My mistake, sorry! So here it is, my bake along post with Joyce and Zoe!

Recipe ( from How to be a Domestic Goddess )
made about 20 mini muffin
1/2 cup milk
scant 7 tbsp corn/ vegetable oil, plus more for greasing ( i used 5 )
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract ( omitted )
11/3 cups/ 160gm  self raising flour
12tsps strawberry jam
1/3 cup superfine sugar
scant 1/2 cup unsalted butter ( i reduced to 50gm)
1/2 cup sugar


Preheat oven to 375F/190C.

With a fork, beat together milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Stir this into the flour and 1/3 cup sugar
until just combined ( can use hand whisk) .  The lumps dont matter and if you overbeat the muffins will be tough. Spoon th emixture into eacah muffin cup so that it's just under a third full. Then with a teaspoon add a dollop of strawberry jam, then top with more muffin mix so that the cases are just about full.

Put them in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 mins or until the tops feel springy and have puffed up into little toadstools. ( I baked mine for 16 mins )Meanwhile, melt the butter slowly in a thick bottomed pan and lay tge remaining sugar out in a wide shallow bowl or plate. As soon as the muffins are ready, remove the from the pan, dip them in the butter and roll them in the sugar. Eat warm.
