  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.

Seriously, these are incredibly good. Serve them warm with hot custard, and they are amazing.

Lovely recipe, so quick and easy and were eaten really quickly. They lasted 3 days in a tin before we ate them all between 2 of us! They had the flavour of doughnuts if not the exact texture, but pretty close.

one word ---- LUSH!!!!! All the flavour of a doughnut without deep frying. I have a wheat intolerance so might try the gluten-free flour so I don't end up bloated after having one muffin.
