"Got this recipe off someone's food blog, and it's to die for! Followed the recipe exactly, and they came out perfect! Not the least bit dry. I checked them a bit early, and although the tops looked very light, the toothpick came out clean, so I immediately took them out of the oven. Had I left them in longer to brown, they probably would've turned out dry. Great recipe! Will be making these often."
"Very nice! Next time will add more stawberry jam :)"
"We didn't really care for these at all, dispite my great expectations. The sweet factor wasn't there at all."
"Made these a couple of days ago...they were so good and not at all dry. Next time I make them, I will add just a bit more cinnamon, because I could hardly taste it. Excellent!"
"These were quite good. I didn't have any problem with dryness (I baked for about 25 minutes). I substituted extra virgin olive oil for the vegetable oil since we were out of vegetable oil. I used 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup of all purpose flour. The end result was good (love the raspberry jam filling), but a little too spicy for my taste. I would prefer them to be a little sweeter, so I think for the next batch, I will omit the nutmeg. Overall, great recipe."
"I really like the idea of having a jam suprise in a muffin. I did found these muffins to be too too bready...You can really taste the dough...I did add marmalade in some of the muffin centres and found it to be the neatest and slighly less sweet than the raspberry filling (jam) and I don't think I will be making them again."
"These were delicious little muffins! We filled them with strawberry spreadable fruit and baked them for approx. 25 minutes and they came out of the oven perfect! I took a tip from another reviewer and used a pastry brush to spread on the topping. I was able to get 9 muffins and they were quickly devoured by the family for breakfast this morning. Thanks, Redsie!"
"Delicious muffins - moist and tasty! I loved the spiciness and the topping was great. I used strawberry jam and I think any flavor of jam or preserves would be great. Loved these easy-to-make muffins - thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Followed the recipe exactly and my muffins came out very dry, crumbly and not very sweet. I also had problems with the assembly. Instead of filling the muffin 1/2 full and adding the jam, I would fill them 1/3 and then add the jam. I had trouble covering all of the jam with the remaining batter, so when the muffins baked the jam broke through the top of the muffin and bubbled away. The jam peeking through the top of the muffin actually looked very nice, but when I dipped the hot muffin into the melted butter most of the jam leaked out and pooled in the bowl of butter. So if I make them again, I would add more oil and sugar to the batter, and instead of dipping the muffins in the melted butter and sugar I would make a simple power sugar glaze and drizzle it over the top."
"So delicious! I made these following the instructions exactly the first time around, and I was very happy with the end result. The doughnut muffins were yummy! I used strawberry jam in ours, as it's our favorite. I may try blueberry and raspberry next time around and that will be soon, as we all liked them so much! Thanks for sharing Redsie!"
"These were really yummy! My family and I really enjoyed these. I did not put the jelly inside because not everyone in my family likes jelly. Thanks for a great recipe."
"These are absolutely WONDERFUL muffins. We LOVED it! And so quick and easy to make. I used strawberry jam for the filling and I got exactly 10 muffins. DS woke up just as I was removing them out of the oven so I couldn't do the topping immediately, but that certainly did not change the texture or taste! Thank you, Redsie, for sharing this wonderful recipe.. definitely will be making it again!"
"It gave me 8 muffins. The smell was amazing. I didn't use nutmeg. I added a bit more of cinnamon and a little bit of ground cardamom. I used 1/2 cup of sugar. And berries jam. Delicious. Thanks Redsie :) Made for the Holiday tag."
"These were very yummy! Followed the recipe exactly, except only used 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I used raspberry and blackberry jam...yum! I ate one warm from the oven and it did remind me of a jelly doughnut, just healthier! Thanks for the awesome recipe Redsie!"
"Well...they kinda taste like a cake doughnut but otherwise are just a VERY NICE muffin. I used buttermilk and made half filled with strawberry jam and half with orange marmalade. The orange marmalade ones were AMAZING! The topping is VERY YUMMY! I brushed the topping on with a silicon brush. Mine looked a little messy because I put too much dough in the bottom and then just had a dollop left for the tops. It still tasted GREAT!"
"I love cinnamon and these were perfect! Used fresh ground nutmeg and cinnamon. Filled half with orange marmalade, and left half plain . . . the filled half were so much better! Thanks for sharing!"
"I can't say that they taste like a donut but they sure do taste like a yummy muffin! This is a very nice recipe to make. I have used a silicone pan now for 2 muffin recipes, they are lovely to remove but it seems that nothing but the bottoms brown in it. For the topping I sprayed the baked tops with Bacel Topping Spray and dipped them into Splenda and cinnamon and used 1/2 a tsp of jam instead of of full tsp in the centers. Very easy and quick to mix and a pleasure to munch. Anyone who enjoys muffins will love these."
