Jelly-Filled Muffins Recipe

"As a child, I always loved the gooey surprise in the center of jelly-filled doughnuts," remembers Darlene Markel from Stayton, Oregon. "These yummy muffins offer that same sweet filling, but they're baked instead of fried."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk, butter and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon half of the batter into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Spoon 1 teaspoon jelly in center of each. Fill muffin cups two-thirds full with remaining batter.
