Peekaboo Jam Muffins

I have a thing for mini muffins.  I think they are so cute!


When I saw these on Foodgawker - I clicked on the link because I knew I would love these!

and I was so right!! :)

Here's where I got them:  peekaboo-jam-muffins


Peekaboo Jam Muffins
Prep Time: 10 mins Cooking Time: 8 to 10 mins

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (used regular whole wheat)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup plain non fat or lowfat yogurt (used low-fat)
Any jelly or jam (used blueberry jam and marmalade)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees (I baked at 350). Combine dry ingredients and whisk together. Combine yogurt, oil and eggs in a measuring cup and beat together with a fork. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Grease a mini muffin tin and fill each cup 1/2 way. Make a little divot with your finger and scoop jam in (1/2 to 1 teaspoon). Cover jam with more batter and then smooth out with your finger. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and then use a butter knife to loosen and lift out muffins. Makes 24 mini muffins.

If you don’t have a mini muffin tin the recipe makes 8 to 10 regular sized muffins and you’ll need to cook them for 15 to 20 minutes instead.

Sounds like a good way to use up some left over jam that has been sitting around. I like the 'peekaboo' to these too.

Those look yummy! I love mini muffins, too. A family favorite is my cinnamon mini muffins. Hmm... haven't had breakfast. Maybe I'll make some! :)
