For some reason, this recipe reminds me of my Granny. She loved to bake & cook. I remember spending cozy Sundays at Granny & Grandpa's house which would always include having faspa, a light evening meal. It would include homemade buns, cold cuts, cheese, jam, pickles, & would always include homemade baking.
The homey flavours of these muffins brought back those memories. Memories of helping Granny set the table, going to her freezer to pick out some baking for the evening, & sitting beside Grandpa while we ate.
Jam-Filled Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins adapted from Taste of Home
makes 10 muffins
1-3/4 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil (I use canola)
3/4 cup buttermilk
Your favourite jam or jelly (I used my homemade pineapple rhubarb jam)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350º. Spray muffin cups with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Set aside. Combine sugar, oil, egg, & buttermilk; stir in dry ingredients just until moistened.
Fill sprayed muffin cups about 1/4 full; place 1 tsp. jam on top. Cover jam with enough batter to fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.
Place melted butter in a small bowl; combine sugar & cinnamon in another bowl.
Immediately after removing muffins from the oven, dip tops in butter, then in cinnamon-sugar. After a couple minutes, you can dip them in the sugar mixture again. Serve warm.
I hope you taste these delicious muffins & remember some homey memories of your own.
