Instructions
  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. Spoon remaining batter over jam.
  4. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
Recipe Notes

Child friendly tips:
Skip the paper liners. Use baking spray to make the muffin tins nonstick. Paper just gets in the way, even for experienced bakers.
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.
Make an apron by using an adult or older sibling's old shirt.
