My Mom’s Jam Muffins

Course Muffins
Cuisine Canadian
Servings 12 muffins
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 35 mins


  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • a generous ½ cup desiccated or flaked coconut
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • a generous ½ cup of jam
  • 1 cup milk or buttermilk


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C or 170°C for a fan oven).
  • Melt the butter. Set aside and allow to cool a bit.
  • Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  • Stir in the coconut and orange rind.
  • Beat egg in a small bowl, and then stir in the jam with a fork, breaking up lumps as much as possible. Add the milk, vanilla and melted butter and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients all at once and stir just to combine. The batter will be lumpy.
  • Divide batter between muffin cups lined with paper liners and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned and the tops spring back when touched lightly.
  • Serve warm. Store cooled leftovers in an airtight container. Re-warm before serving.
