    Blackberry doughnut muffins

    Part jammy doughnut, part sugar-dusted cake – totally irresistible

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Makes: 12


    180g unsalted butter, melted
    150g natural yogurt
    3 eggs
    300g self-raising flour
    275g caster sugar

    Jam Filling:
    150g blackberries
    1 bramley apple (about 200g), peeled, cored and finely diced
    100g caster sugar
    1 tsp lemon juice


    1. To make the jam filling, put the blackberries, apple, sugar and lemon juice in a pan over a medium heat. Stir and cook gently until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to a boil and bubble for 10-15 minutes. Take off the heat and leave to cool. The jam will look runny, but will firm up as it cools.

    2. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Brush the holes of a 12-hole muffin tin with 1 tbsp melted butter; leave the rest of the butter to cool slightly. Put the tin in the oven for 5 minutes to heat (not necessary if using silicone).

    3. Beat together the yogurt and eggs, then stir in the remaining butter. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, 200g caster sugar and a good pinch of salt. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing well to remove any lumps.

    4. Remove the muffin tin from the oven. Fill each hole 2/3 full with batter, then spoon over 1-2 tsp blackberry jam and cover with the remaining batter. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.

    5. Cool the muffins in the tin for 2 minutes, then turn out and roll in sugar. Cool a little before eating.
