These are very easy and quick to make muffins with a great fruity flavour. They are a perfect summer´s day treat. Can be adapted to your personal jam/fruit preference. Edited 3/2/09: In response to Sarah's review I'm posting the conversions into US measurements here as well. However these are naturally a little different from the metric ones. So I'd highly recommend you to check your batter before filling it in and if its too runny add a bit more flour and if its too thick a bit more fluid to get the right consistency.

Top Review by Tisme

I followed the recipe exactly, but I think I may have overmixed the mixture. They tasted great with my homemade strawberry jam, but seemed a little doughy inside, didn't matter the family loved them.
I left half without the extra jam on top for DH he didn't even notice........ he loved them.
I am going to try these again but with blackberry jam instead,(and less mixing)I think the strawberry was a little overly sweet and the blackberry would be really good.
