Doughnut muffins with chocolate and strawberry jam

I would like to give a big thank you to all my readers for their birthday wishes and sympathizing with my lunch fiasco. This month’s Sweet and Simple Bake’s jammy doughnut muffins are for all of you.
Being a chocoholic I had to try adding some chocolate chips to half of them. The result, I was sorry to find out, was not as nice as the one with the jam filling.
The strawberry jam was made a while ago by chopping and cooking some on the verge of going bad strawberries with 1/2 cup of sugar and some lemon juice.
Quick Strawberry Jam
2 cups chopped strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
Juice of half a lemon
In a heavy bottom pan cook the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice till thick. Cool and store in a clean glass jar.

Now for the jammy doughnut recipe all my Sweet and Simple bake friends will be posting all over the world.
2 cup all purpose flour
1/2cup + 2 tbsp superfine sugar
3 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
7 oz milk
4 oz butter
1 tsp vanilla
Jam and semisweet chocolate chips

In a microwave safe mixing bowl melt the butter and let cool. Meanwhile crack the eggs, measure the milk and sift and combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar and baking powder).
When the butter is cooled add the milk, eggs and vanilla to it. Whisk to combine before adding the dry ingredients. Combine to incorporate but do not over mix. It is ok to have a lumpy batter. Preheat oven to 375c and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
Fill with the batter half way and add a tsp of jam or chocolate chips. Top with the rest of the batter and bake for 15 -20 minutes till a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Finishing touches:
To decorate, I just brushed the muffins with a cold stick of butter and rolled them in white sugar and red sprinkle sugar. The original recipe calls for melting 4 oz of butter and dipping the muffins in it before rolling on the sugar.
The muffins were delicious and were presented to the new neighbors across the street as a welcome to the neighborhood gesture.
Thank you Maria and Rosie for another Sweet and Simple bake recipe.


  1. Very yummy indeed...I love surprises tucked into simple packages.

  2. Great looking muffins there..I really love the strawberry in and out :)

  3. Looks delicious. I love anything that has stuffed jam in it :-))

    As far as mangoes are concerned we buy themfrom Costco, they have something called Atulfo which tastes delicious. They also carry another brand mango from Mexico which is usually hit or miss. Sometimes they are sweet, but other times have lots of fibre which is not edible. Hope this helps.

  4. Yours look lovely with the red sugar. Great idea.

  5. These look so pretty, well done! You also win points for making your own strawberry jam :)
