Recipe of the Day: Surprise Muffins


My mom use to make these when we were kids…

Surprise Muffins

2 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 egg, slightly beaten with a fork

1 cup milk

1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted shortening

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup jelly

Grease the bottom ONLY of a 12-cup muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 400*F. In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a second medium sized bowl, combine the egg, milk, vanilla and vegetable oil. Make a ‘well’ in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients to the well. Stir until the mixture is moist. Don’t over mix…the batter should be lumpy. Fill the muffin tins half full. Now, here is the SURPRISE: drop a teaspoon of jelly into the center of each muffin. Add more batter on top of the jelly so that each cup is 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. When the muffins are baked there will be a jelly surprise in the middle.
