Little did I know that February is Bake for Family Fun Month, well you know we support baking with the family as we have our own Kids Kitchen! But as February is coming to an end, you should at least get in the kitchen with your children and have some Family Fun! Gooseberry Patch offered this great recipe from their Kids in the Kitchen book, Jam Surprise Muffins!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- non-stick vegetable spray
- 1/2 cup favorite-flavor jam
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with a fork or a pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly. Form a well in the center. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and milk; pour into the well in the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir until ingredients are just moistened, about 25 strokes. Batter will be lumpy. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick vegetable spray and lightly dust with flour, or use paper liners. Fill muffin cups about 1/3 full of batter. Spoon one tablespoon jam on top of batter; top with enough batter to fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
Tip: Use the toothpick test to see if your muffins are finished baking!
After 20 minutes, remove muffin tin from oven. Insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, or with only a few crumbs clinging to it, the muffins are finished baking. If there is uncooked batter or many damp crumbs on the toothpick, return the muffins to the oven and bake for a few minutes longer.
