I've seen a few versions of this out there....it's not a new idea; but the ones I make are out of this world delicious. My family just loves them; and they are indeed a tough crowd of muffin connoisseurs! We love muffins at our house; and sometimes our friends stay over, just so they can have muffins in the morning!

How to Make My "Surprise" Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Recipe directs to preheat the oven to 400 degrees. My oven seems to run a little differently; so I cook mine at 355 until they are done on top, and if they look done on top, but I find they are still too soft, I lower the temperature to 320 to ensure that the tops don't over-brown, yet they cook thoroughly within the next 5-7 minutes; depending on the size of muffins being made.
  2. Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with liners (2 3/4 inches in diameter).
  3. In a separate bowl, thoroughly sift or whisk to combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the moist ingredients into the well. Stir just until combined. DO NOT OVERSTIR.
  5. Fill each muffin cup about 1/3 full. Drop a teaspoon of jam, jelly or marmalade into the center of each muffin; and then, using the remaining dough, fill the muffin cups to just a little over the top.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until muffins are a golden brown. Immediately remove to cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!!!
