My mother made these muffins for us when we were kids and always used her home made crabapple jelly in them. I use strawberry or raspberry jam since thats what my kids like and they both work well,but feel free to use what ever you like.

Wow these were the most delicious muffins although when we made them we forgot the jam so we just spead some on after and they were amazing. We used Strawberry jam with ours. Definatly try out this recipe! TY Carrie

Just fabulous! I made 12 muffins and 12 mini muffins from this mix. Of course I probably used twice the amount of jam too! I used apricot jam and on 3 of the mini muffins I tried some nutella as well which was nice. These are really pretty. I can't wait to try it with different jams! I added a bit of applesauce and an extra splash of milk to the mixture too as I found it needed a bit more moisture while mixing.

Really good. Almost like a banana cake taste. I used apricot jam as a filler and it went very well with the banana flavour. Moist and easy to do. I have some frozen in the freezer but I doubt they'll stay there long. Thanks Carrie Ann
