Jam Donut Muffins

An all time kids favourite, and for those young at heart as well. These are a little healthier than deep fried donuts I suppose. It's full of sugar, so not an everyday food. This recipe was taken from

2 cups self raising flour
2/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
175ml buttermilk
1tsp vanilla extract

For the filling:
1/2 cup of strawberry or raspberry jam (mine were some leftover Rosella jam from the markets)

For the topping:
100g melted butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup caster sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  3. Lightly beat all the wet ingredients together and pour it into the dry ingredients.
  4. Mix until combined.
  5. Spoon some muffin mix into the muffin pan, put a large dollop of jam in the middle and cover with more muffin mix.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  7. When the muffins are slightly cooled, brush melted butter on top and dust with the premixed cinnamon sugar.
