Baked Doughnut muffins with jam

doughnutmuffins doughnutmuffins1 doughnutmuffins2The school holidays are still on and I am enjoying cooking something different for the kids breakfast. It is nice to not have to get lunches ready, pack school bags, get school uniforms out, make sure teeth are brushed, hair has been combed and put back, everyone has socks and all are ready near the front door to go out and hop in the car.

Last week I made these yummy Baked doughnut muffins with Jam. The kids really enjoyed them and want me to make them again. There wasn’t much jam left in the middle after cooking but I think that was my fault because I used some of my homemade jam which was runny. The kids even pointed that out so I will use thicker jam next time.

    Looks quite decadent! And not too hard. My homemade jam is a bit runny too… hoping to get it ‘just right’ this year!

      They were easy to make. If the kids like them, I know they were good. Yes my strawberry jam was a bit runny this year. I put too much water with them when starting the jam. The strawberries were quite juicy. I have remembered not to add alot of water next time. There is always trial and error!
