"Pretty good! I added 1/2 t cinnamon. I also sprinkled the tops with granola (next time I might try coarse sugar). I also would add just a little more jam...maybe a full teaspoon for each muffin. All in all, a good muffin and one you could experiment with (orange zest, different jams, etc.) PS I used plum preserves and they were excellent!"
