Love Donuts? Love Muffins? Why not combine the two? Honestly some people are geniuses!!
Then comes the name…..what to call them, apparently Donut Muffins is way to boring and well, obvious – so you can find recipes everywhere online and in many stores for Duffins or Muffnuts and that last one requires some thought and more than a few smirks I am sure!
Variations of this recipe can be found in many places but as with all things Just a Mum I like to go for the easy option and this recipe is really really easy. Takes very little time to make and makes a big batch too.
For some extra pizzaz I have added into the mix a centre of jam, you can use any jam you like. Today I used strawberry, but what I recommend is using a good quality one so that it holds its flavour and texture while baking. Feel free to be even more generous with the jam centre than I was if you like more flavour. You could even omit the jam from the baking part and then pipe it in from the top once cooked!
This recipe made 15 good sized muffins, so feel free to double it or halve it if you require less. This recipe also calls for buttermilk – I always prepare my own by using normal milk and either white vinegar or lemon juice.
Here is a great tip when baking – never bang or tap the cup on the bench to settle the level. Best practice is to aerate the flour first with a knife or whisk, then scoop the cup into the flour, and level with a knife. This way you get the precise amounts of flour the recipe calls for! 🙂
It really is quite easy! The quality of the jam is quite important, I used our cheapy one and I found that it disappeared a little on the cooking process, still nice but a great quality jam would be delicious!

I made these yesterday and froze most of them. Thawed one out today and it tasted just as nice as those out of the oven.
Wonderful! So pleased to hear it.

Thank you Lisa!
The recipe is perfect. We really enjoyed the donuts.
I love you, woman… This recipe will be probably second home baked thing which my extreme picky eater will bite and fully finish… First were your double chocolate cookies. He ate today half of the batch (normally all family is eating cake, cookies, etc. he only looks or take one bite…) Won’t let your webpage go away… <3
That’s brilliant! I’m so pleased to hear that ☺️

Hi, found your page on Facebook.
Going to make your butterscotch
Self-Saucing Pudding tonight and
Donut Muffins tomorrow.
Looking forward to both.
Wonderful!! Let me know how it goes
Hello just wondering which jam you used – the brand of it ?
I believe it was Craig’s, but any jam will do ☺️

Just made these and sitting here looking at other recipes and thought OMG I DIDNT PUT THE OIL IN OOPS bit late damm
Oh no! What a pain, I often do that, many a time I have forgotten ingredients entirely or mixed up quantities trying to multi task. Did you bake them, I wonder what they turn out like! 😀

Oh yum! What a clever idea. I’m not actually a fan of donuts, but I think I would LOVE these!
They are really light and delicious and of course it is all about the topping 😀
Sounds very nice will have to try l had a recipe years ago but sadly lost it so hope this one is the one to replace it
Thanks for sharing
Ha ha, more great names! Hope you enjoy it Michelle 😀
