Jammy Doughnut Muffins

This month’s recipe is Jammy Doughnut Muffins. I am reminiscing of seaside holidays where warm jammy doughnuts covered in sugar and then passed warm from the vendor in a paper bag are abundant. I have in the past challenge Mr R (hubby) to eat a sugared doughnut without licking his lips until he had finished eating. It’s more difficult than it sounds believe

We are going a little healthier with this recipe by making Jammy Doughnut Muffins! No oil in sight to fry them as with the real McCoy of doughnuts, and I have pleasure in saying these muffins are quick and simple to make and delicious, just what Sweet and Simple Bakes is all about! There is a buttery sugared topping on your initial bite with a soft vanilla sponge and then followed by a delightful jam interior, you could even ring the changes by using different flavoured jams. You may have some delectable homemade jam(s) you wish to use or what about the sublime Dulce de Leche, (“toffee sauce”) even a thick vanilla custard or stewed apples. We can’t wait to see what variations you come up with. These little beauties are superb to add to your repertoire if family or friends happen to call by unannounced for afternoon tea! *If you have any queries or questions, please leave a comment under the recipe and we will endeavour to reply to you as soon as possible.*

Lucie said...

These look Fab Rosie! Lovely that all the ingredients are in my cupboard and I'm ready to roll. Look forward to baking these soon..

Yael said...

I just saw these and decided I had to bake them right away! They're in the oven now and from the smell and looks of them, I'll be making them again a few times before the post date! Easy- it took me 5 minutes to get them mixed and in the oven!

Wonk said...

Ooooh, damn, I don't think I can even stop myself licking my lips just at the thought let alone actually eat one and resist ;)

Looking forward to these, adore doughnuts so will be interesting to try a muffin version!

Your muffins look delicious!

♥Rosie♥ said...

Thanks Maria, Lucie, Yael, Wonk & C.G.

These muffins are a tad moorish, they didn't last long in the cake tin with family around over the past couple of weeks :0)I find them a nice little stand by for baking something quickly and mostly I have all the ingredients to hand in the cupboard.

Pleased you like this choice Maria and I'm sure your boys will enjoy these :0)

Lucie good news you'll be baking these in no time ;0)

Great news Yael - enjoy sweetie :0)

Lol Wonk, well lets just say, my hubby didn't pass the challenge either and he licked his lips ;0)

Best wishes Rosie x

A word of warning - I tried them in silicone muffin trays today...which turned into something of a fiasco. They're too structurally unsound to work without cupcake papers!

Whoops... Take 2 coming up!
The other Rosie.

Sweet and Savory said...

I can't believe it. I forgot to check what we are baking.

This is my kind of baking. Say muffin and I jump. Say, "jammy doughnut muffin" and I am flying.

Please, gals, stop at my new blog for something that is waiting for you.

O that is one lovely muffin! Unfortunately I haven't been able to do much baking for the last couple of months but I would have loved to do this one. "Unfortunately" I am going away on holiday next week so I will have to pass yet another one.. :(

♥Rosie♥ said...
