"I spooned about 2 Tablespoons of the batter into each muffin cup, followed by a teaspoon of jelly, then topped with the remaining batter. So good with the jelly baked inside!"

"Pretty good, I skipped the cinnamon sugar topping though. Made a batch of minis and they also turned out well, just baked a wee bit to long (whoops) but these are great for a peanut butter fix."

"Can crunchy peanut butter be used in this recipe?"
