    Just made these. A breeze to prepare, quick to cook, and delicious. Added chopped walnuts and chocolate morsels to mine. Not sure what the previous reviewer meant by using a syringe to insert just the right amount of jam - as far as I understood the recipe, the jam goes right into the batter and gets mixed with the rest of it. No danger of bursting. Depending on the sugar concentration of the jam/preserves used, the added sugar could be scaled down. Great stuff, try it out yourself.  -  23 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I did not like these muffins at all! I used blackberry jam which gave the muffins an ugly color. Also, 25 minutes was too long in the oven...so watch them. Maybe blackberry jam just isn't the type to use in these muffins.  -  04 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
