Use your favorite fruit preserves to fill these easy to make muffins.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup fruit preserves

Steps to Make It

Preheat oven to 425 F.

  1. Into a mixing bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Form a well in the center.

  2.  In another bowl, whisk together the egg and milk.

  3. Pour into the well and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened (about 25 strokes). ​The batter will be lumpy.

  4. Fill greased and floured muffin cups or paper liners about 1/3 full. Carefully center 2 teaspoons of preserves over batter and cover with enough batter to fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, remove from oven and serve!
