I made a batch of jammy muffins today, and enjoyed some with a cup of tea. Recipe below:

*Barb’s Jammy Muffins

1 and 3/4 cup flour
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
200ml milk or buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
2 tblsp raspberry jam

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
Beat eggs together with oil and milk, add vanilla extract.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ones, mix quickly and lightly with a metal spoon till just combined. Place a large spoonful into each of 12 large muffin cases, then spoon some raspberry jam and a couple of frozen raspberries into the centre of each one. Cover with another spoonful of muffin mixture.

Bake at 200 deg Celcius for 20 minutes, until well risen and golden. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 mins before removing from muffin pan.

Melt a little butter in the microwave. In another bowl, mix together 1/2 cup sugar and a tablespoon of cinnamon. With a pastry brush, spread melted butter onto each muffin, and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mix over each one. Set aside to cool.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.
