Jammy Donuts

19 Apr

The recipe for ‘Jammy Donuts’ Muffins in Baking Magic (by Kate Shirazi) took my fancy recently. I suppose they’re kind of like baked donuts? No doubt healthier than their cooked-in-oil counterparts, but every bit as delicious.



300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
150g caster sugar (and extra for the tops)
250ml buttermilk (I used milk mixed with a little natural yogurt and it was fine)
1 beaten egg
50g melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 tbsp raspberry jam

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F.

Combine the flour, baking powder and sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, butter and vanilla, then pour into the dry ingredients. Mix together gently.

Spoon a small amount into each muffin case. Make a small indentation and add a teaspoon of jam, then cover with more mixture.

Bake for around 20 minutes.

The recipe suggests sprinkling caster sugar over the muffins when they are still warm, but I found that the sugar didn’t really stick. By using a little water brushed over the tops, I got a much better donut-like effect.
