We decided to make one of our family favourite bakes today – Jammy muffins! They are easy to make and are brilliant to encourage the little ones to get involved in the kitchen! The recipe and method we use are as follows –
Ingredients – 225 g plain flour, 75 g caster sugar, 2 eggs, pinch of salt, 1 tbsp baking powder, 160 ml milk, 5 tbsp melted butter and 8 tbsp jam.
Method – Preheat oven to 190 C. Add flour, sugar, salt and baking powder to a bowl and mix. In a different bowl, add the eggs, milk and melted butter and mix. Then pour the egg mixture into the other ( dry ingredient) bowl and stir. Spoon half the mixture into cake cases. Then make a well in each cake mix and add a spoon of jam. Then pour another spoon of cake mix over the top of the jam. Bake for 20 mins or until golden.
We used strawberry jam in our muffins, but you can add whichever flavour jam you like. These are my daughters favourite thing to bake and she loves putting the jam into the cakes, then ‘hiding’ the jam again with the cake mix! A yummy family treat!
