Write a review
  1. 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 2/3 cup milk
  7. 1/3 cup butter, melted
  8. 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  9. 1/2 cup raspberry or strawberry jam
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, lightly beat eggs; add milk, butter and lemon peel. Pour into dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  3. Spoon half of the batter into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Make a well in the center of each; add jam.
  4. Spoon remaining batter over jam. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
Child friendly tips
  1. Skip the paper liners. Use baking spray to make the muffin tins nonstick. Paper just gets in the way, even for experienced bakers.
  2. Use a small "ice cream scoop" to measure batter for each muffin. A small scoop will allow for 2 scoops and you can pop the jam in between scoops.
  3. Make an apron by using an adult or older sibling's old shirt.
