Easy Strawberry Jam Doughnut Muffins

These jam doughnut muffins are made with sweet strawberry jam and are perfect for charity bake sales and children's birthday parties. The kids love playing the 'who can eat the whole doughnut muffin without licking their lips' game, which my husband is also partial to joining in with too.

The jam doughnut muffins are made with natural yogurt which gives them a lovely lightness but all of the other ingredients are standard pantry staples so the muffins are really easy and quick to make. You can use whatever jam you like but lemon curd is also really nice!

I love the muffins that have jam oozing out of the top...but be careful not to burn your mouth. You've got to let them cool before eating!
