Jam doughnut style muffins...

Those muffins are great! Highly addictive! They're way easier than traditional doughnuts and healthier too (for what it's worth you're not deep frying them but baking). Very quick and easy to make too. I usually make them when baking the bread. The most energy consuming is actually heating the oven so once it's on the full swing I use it for baking muffins etc. and bread dough has ideal warm condition for rising.

How to make it...
- 6 tbsp sunflower oil
- 280 g plain flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 115 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 200 ml milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- strawberry jam
- granulated sugar for coating

Preheat the oven to 200 C. Grease a muffin tin (from that amount I got 16 muffins). Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
In another bowl combine lightly beaten eggs, milk, oil and vanilla extract. Beat together until you get quite even consistency.
Pour your wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir gently until just combine - don't over mix it!
Divide the mixture evenly into your muffin wholes and place a tsp on jam onto each one - it will 'fall into' a muffin during baking. Bake for 20 minutes until muffins are golden brown and firm to the touch.

Leave the muffins in the tin to cool down for 5 minutes and then coat in the granulated sugar - just like a doughnut :) Enjoy!
