How to Make Jam Burst Banana Muffins


  1. Beat sugar and butter or margarine together. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add baking soda, cinnamon and flour. Mix well. Beat in bananas.
  2. Line a large muffin tin with paper cups. Fill muffin cup 1/2 full. Make a well in the batter, without seeing the bottom of the cup, and leaving a small amount around the edges. Fill the well with jam, about 1 - 2 tsps of jam. Cover with batter until cup is 2/3 full.
    If the edges of the batter are not sealed, jam will leak out the sides as it cooks.
  3. Bake at 350F in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean of batter, and muffins are lightly golden. Remove from pan and let cool.
  4. Sometimes instead of putting jam in the center, I stir chocolate chips in the batter.
