Jammie Doughnut Muffins

I saw these scrumptious muffins over at Katiecakes and just couldn't resist!

Katie made these little wonders for the Sweet and Simple Bakes monthly event. I made them for us to scoff!

The only thing I would say about these muffins is eat them while they are still warm to enjoy them at their best.

I have included the recipe changed into cup measures, but you can find the original recipe here.

Jammie Doughnut Muffins


2 ½ cups plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
¾ cup caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
75g/3 oz/¾ stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 tsp strawberry jam

For The Topping

melted butter
granulated sugar
ground cinnamon

You will need 12 hole muffin tin lined with paper cases.


Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas mark 5.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl, and stir through the sugar. In a large jug, lightly beat the eggs then add the milk, cooled butter and vanilla extract and beat together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients stir gently until just combined. (Do not over mix, its fine to have a few lumps in the mixture.) Spoon half the muffin mixture into the base of each paper case. Top each muffin with a teaspoon of jam. Now equally between each paper case, top with the remaining muffin mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes until well risen, golden and firm to the touch.

For The Topping: melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Spread the granulated sugar in a wide, shallow bowl with the cinnamon if using. When the muffins are baked, leave in the tin for 5 minutes. Dip the tops of the muffins in the melted butter and then roll in the sugar.

Makes 12

Thanks for the recipe Katie!


  1. Great photo! This is a wonderful recipe.

  2. I like the idea of putting jam inside a muffin. Yours looks so yummy.

  3. It is a great recipe Chele, I think a lot of bloggers joined in the challenge and made them, but Katie's muffins just looked fab!

    Thanks Andrea :)

  4. I'm so glad you enjoyed the muffins, I couldn't get enough of them :D

    Ahhh, I'll be devastated when Gogo has to go back to her mum but the great hing is they're planning on moving in round the corner from me so I'll always be able to visit. Plus, it means we've always got a cat sitter for our two too :)

  5. These would be a little but of heaven this early in the morning Jacqueline.

  6. That's good news Katie, visitation rights for cue little Gogo!

    Thanks again for the recipe :)

  7. These are delish Jacqueline, I made them with S&SB's too and they went down a treat. I must do them again! Lucie x

  8. Mmm I have been wanting to make these for the longest time! Thanks for reminding me. I'd bet they'd also be great with some peanut butter added in...then they'd be PB+J doughnut muffins!

  9. They are moreish Lucie :)

    Peanut butter and jam! That is a fabulous idea Joanne :)

  12. ZOMG!!! These look *so* good!!!!!

  13. Wow, these are great looking muffins. Sign me up.

  14. These sounds great - like a healthier version of doughnuts and I love the cinnamon twist. Maybe I should try making the with chocolate spread in the middle - although actually I quite fancy the jam.

  15. I've seen this sort of recipe before and always meant to make it - I like the advice about eating them warm - sounds exactly my sort of muffins but I assume you need to strike a balance between hot muffins that taste good and hot muffins with lava jam that burns the roof of your mouth

  16. Mouth-watering photo, Jacqueline! Super idea too! Going to try this soon, but with raspberry jam, our favorite. Can't wait to bite into that at breakfast!

  17. Oh goodness. Don't those look awesome! I wish I had one right now.

  18. Oooh waw!!

    these look exceptionally tasty & so apart too!!

    Must make them soon,...!!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing, my friend!

  19. How cute!! I'd love one of these right now. I love all the sugar on top too mmm it's like a jelly filled doughnut in muffin form.

  20. Thanks Richard :)

    Will do TB :)

    Mmmmmmm, good thinking Choclette, nutella would be amazing in the middle!

    You definitely have to strike the balance to avoid a burnt mouth Johanna. Restraint is essential!

    Hi Barbara, we too have moved on to raspberry jam this week. yum!

    You know I woud pass one to you if I could Lisa :) ps thank you for my birthday present, I have managed to keep it unopened.

    It's my pleasure Sophie :)

    Exactly Ashley, that's why I just had to make them!

  23. Jammy doghnuts - in a muffin? Oh Lord, they sound sublime!

  24. Awww - that little bun that's been split open looks like he's smiling! How cute!

  25. One of the best sites for trreating food as it should be treated - as something to be enjoyed and to feel grateful for - and not worshipped. Well done!

  26. I've seen a similar looking Jammie muffin recipe in one of my cookbooks, been meaning to make it for awhile, but I can't seem to bring myself to make it just for me and D. I'll have to wait till I have some friends over, for now i'll drool over yours.

  27. You have inspired some serious cravings now. I am going right now to buy me some jam filled doughnuts with my evening cuppa. no time to bake any myself :-)

  28. These sound wonderful, duely bookmarked for a weekend breakfast.
