“These are very easy and quick to make muffins with a great fruity flavour. They are a perfect summer´s day treat. Can be adapted to your personal jam/fruit preference. Edited 3/2/09: In response to Sarah's review I'm posting the conversions into US measurements here as well. However these are naturally a little different from the metric ones. So I'd highly recommend you to check your batter before filling it in and if its too runny add a bit more flour and if its too thick a bit more fluid to get the right consistency.”
18 muffins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 280 g flour (2 1/4 cup )
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 100 g sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 1 egg
  • 75 ml oil (neutral in taste, 5 1/8 tbs)
  • 300 ml milk (1 1/4 cup)
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 teaspoon nutmeg

  • cinnamon sugar


  1. Mix together flour, baking powder and spices.
  2. In a big bowl lightly whisk the egg. Add sugar, oil and milk and stir well.
  3. Add the flour mixture and blend in well (not too long, though).
  4. Fill half of the dough into a lined muffin pan. Give one small teaspoon full of jam into each mould, then cover with another heap of dough.
  5. Bake muffins in the pre-heated oven at 180°C (350-375°F) for about 25 minutes.
  6. Spread the warm muffins with the additional jam and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (to taste).
