Blackcurrant Jam Swirl Muffins

Uncategorized | July 11, 2013 | By

Sometimes only a sweet treat will do and if I don’t have any goodies in the house, I often make muffins using a simple recipe and varying the flavourings depending on my mood or, more likely, what I have to hand.
I had some visitors coming so mixed up this batch of muffins using Duerr’s Blackcurrant Jam.  Dueerr’s jam isn’t just for spreading on your bread, it’s great for baking too.  Check out the recipes on the Duerr’s website to see lots of other treats you can make.

Blackcurrant Jam Swirl Muffins (makes 10-12)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup Duerr’s Blackcurrant Jam

1. Heat the oven to 200C.  Line your muffin tin with paper cases.
2. In a large bowl, beat milk, oil and egg with a whisk until well mixed.  Stir in flour, sugar baking powder and salt all at once just until the flour is moistened, the batter will be lumpy.  Fold in the blackcurrant jam. Divide evenly between the paper cases.
3. Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown. 

The muffins were delicious with ripples of jam running through the muffins and even better…there is only one bowl to wash up!
Thanks to Erin for providing me with some Duerr’s jam to bake with, I was not paid for this post and all opinions are my own.

    I like muffins too, mostly because I can make a batch and freeze some. These look good! I'll have to see what jam I have lurking!
