Jam Doughnut Muffins

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yes, you read correct, todays recipe is for Jam Doughnut Muffins. These are a really simple muffin mix baked with jam (you could add custard, if custard in doughnuts is your thing) in the middle, and then dipped in butter and sugar to give that real doughnut effect. The muffins look and taste like doughnuts but with no frying involved at all! And, did I mention how quick these are to make? As far as I see it, it's a win-win situation. 
P.S If you do make these, snap a pic and tag me on Instagram!
This recipe made 11 muffins.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Self-Raising Flour
2. Sugar
3. Baking Powder
4. Salt
5. Vanilla Flavouring
6. Jam (or Custard)
7. Butter
8. Eggs
9. Milk

Bismillah, let's bake!

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/400F/200C.

Take a 12 hole muffin tin, and drizzle a little vegetable oil (or butter) into each hole.

Wipe it well with a paper towel. This recipe requires well greases muffin tins because it doesn't use paper cases, and so you could run the risk of having your muffins stuck to the tin - which nobody wants, so grease away!!

Throw all your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. These are:
10 ounces (283 grams) of Self-Raising Flour
1/4 tablespoon of Baking Powder 
Pinch of Salt
4 ounces (113 grams) of Sugar

Mix well, and make a well in the centre.

Into a smaller bowl, place all the wet ingredients:
3 ounces (85 grams) Butter, melted and cooled
2 Eggs
200 ml Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Flavouring

Whisk together.

Pour into the dry mix.

Mix until combined.

To assemble, divide half the mixture between all the muffin holes.

Add 1 teaspoon of Jam to each muffin. I used a strawberry but you could use whatever you like. You could even replace the jam for ready-made custard.

Top with the other half of the mixture.

Until your tray looks like this!

Bake in the preheated oven at Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes.

Allow them to cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then remove to a wire rack.

How cute do they look?! I don't think I'm ever going to use paper cases again!

Next, for the topping, take 3 tablespoons of Sugar and 3 tablespoons of Butter, melted.

Take each muffin and dip the top into the butter.

Then the sugar.

And, there you have it! The Jam Doughnut Muffins are done and ready to be munched!
