Really great muffins! the topping on these muffins is so yummy, that I have doubled the ingredients, as I prefer a lot of topping on my muffins, you can easily cut it in half if desired. You will most likely have left over topping, just refrigerate or freeze until the next time, these are just so delicious! Feel free to use any flavor of jam you desire, though I do think that raspberry is the best in these muffins, you may also cut down the sugar amount to suit taste, as the jam will create sweetness.

Wonderful! Nothing unusual for Kittencal though! Was easy to put together and very moist. I used some Blueberry preserves and they were over the top. Served warm with butter and I was in heaven! Used large 6 tin muffin pan and baked for about 45 minutes

- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
