Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Lightly grease a 12-hole muffin tin (or use a silicone one). Put 140g sugar, flour and bicarb in a bowl and mix to combine. In a jug, whisk together the yogurt, eggs and vanilla. Tip the jug contents and melted butter into the dry ingredients and quickly fold with a metal spoon to combine.
  2. Divide two-thirds of the mixture between the muffin holes. Carefully add 1 tsp jam into the centre of each, then cover with the remaining mixture. Bake for 16-18 mins until risen, golden and springy to touch.
  3. Leave the muffins to cool for 5 mins before lifting out of the tin and rolling in the extra sugar.

I went to visit my friend one day and she made these muffins in just 5 min!!! And we had our coffee treat in just 20 min...Love it so much but I would recommend to put little bit less jam inside so it will not sunk to the bottom. I made one with Chocolate for my son and friends and they love it – amazing.

I was quite disappointed by these. The jam sank to the bottom and then fell out of each muffin before eating, and they didn't taste like a doughnut at all - they're basically just a plain cupcake rolled in sugar. Shame really.

Really lovely recipe - they come out so light and fluffy! I used paper liners in the muffin tin (I didn't trust my tin's non-stickability) and they were still lovely. Was really glad for the liners because some of my jam had exploded out of the sides! Just meant the jam didn't end up welded to my tin :) and then just rolled the tops in sugar as directed, still lovely.

Great for people who want a lighter alternative to donuts!

Easy, delicious and very doughnut-y! I also had the problem of the jam sinking to the bottom and falling out, despite being careful with filling the muffin holes to 2/3 or more first - however this did not stop my friends and I from clearing the lot! Also I agree with other users that far less sugar was required to roll the muffins in. Will definitely make these again.

Really really easy to make! Make sure you put plenty of mixture in the tray before rasberry otherwise it seaps through hehe my bad! but still absolutely delicious...the sugar coating makes them taste more like a doughnut than a muffin but i definately didnt use the whole 200g only a little covering will be making again with some nutella in the middle

Amazing! Utterly better than your traditional doughnuts. A tad naughty, but who cares when they taste that good!

These are amazing have made with all different types of jam. I don't bother rolling in sugar - it does not need.
Will make over and over again.

Definite hit with adults & kids. Made half jam half nutella. Most of them disappeared within minutes of coming out of the oven!
Have made several times with golden castor sugar & normal, must admit we all preferred the normal.

A great recipe although I had the same problem with jam sinking! Looking forward to varying the fillings. With regards to covering with sugar; take them out of the tin and the bottom will be "sweaty". It's the underside that the sugar will stick to and not the top. Any ideas how to stop jam sinking?

Delicious, taste just like the real thing! I have made them with lemon curd and vanilla custard too and all came out tasty!

Tried it with lemon curd and was really nice. Though like a lot of the others, the filling sank to the bottom (only in some) even though I put the lemon curd very near the top. My boyfriend thought it was amazing. Can taste the bicarbonate soda but a really moist doughnut muffin.

Made these tonight but halved the recipe just in case they were a disaster. What can I say, yummy!! Definitely on my "make again" list.

Thes are lovely, and so soft, definately be making these again.
Although i left it too late to cover with sugar, and so it rolled of just about.

First time they were fantastic and second time the jam leaked through and they were like jam flavoured muffins - think this is a hit or miss recipe, but when you get it right it is a winner.
