Just made these. A breeze to prepare quick to cook and delicious. Added chopped walnuts and chocolate morsels to mine. Not sure what the previous reviewer meant by using a syringe to insert just the right amount of jam - as far as I understood the recipe the jam goes right into the batter and gets mixed with the rest of it. No danger of bursting. Depending on the sugar concentration of the jam/preserves used the added sugar could be scaled down. Great stuff try it out yourself. Read More

I did not like these muffins at all! I used blackberry jam which gave the muffins an ugly color. Also 25 minutes was too long in the oven...so watch them. Maybe blackberry jam just isn't the type to use in these muffins. Read More

I found that 400 degrees was way too hot of a temperature my muffins burned after about 15 minutes. The texture was fabulous and the preparation easy but the flavor was a little on the sweet side. Read More

YUM!! I doubled the recipe then realized I didn't have enough grape jam. I added chunky peanut butter to make up the 2 cups needed. These muffins were FANTASTIC!!! Read More

I found this recipe quick and easy to make. It yielded a nice tasty muffin. I used a black cherry jam that no one liked on their toast but it sure made a tasty muffin. Read More
