Nigella Lawson’s Jam doughnut muffins

"Can you just not baking for a day?.. please.. have a rest.."that was what my husband said.. okay..i will, i hope... i dont know... yay..(hates cooking but loves baking..)
I promised my son that we’d make something together , chocolate chip cookies but since we were short on time I picked this as it’s such a simple recipe to knock out.

All you need:
I hate using kitchen scale, so i converted into cup measurement.. making my life easier..

1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup corn or vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 teaspoons strawberry jam really depends on you on how much you wanted to

How to make?
i dont snap any picture to show you how.... as my husband asked me to make it in quick time so we can watch a dvd together..
  • With a fork, beat together the milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Stir this into the flour and sugar to combine.
  • Spoon the mixture into each muffin cup so that it's just under a third full. Then with a teaspoon add a dollup of strawberry jam, then top with more muffin mix so that the cases are just about full.
  • Put them in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the tops feel springy and resistant and the muffins have puffed up into little toadstools.
For dusting/coating the muffin:
½ cup unsalted butter(melted) i spread some strawberry jam instead of using butter
½ cup granulated sugar

Simply dip into the melted butter ant then coat/dip it with sugar..Now you have it.. the strawberry doughnuts...delicious, scrumptious muffins..
