SUGARED DOUGHNUT MUFFINS FILLED WITH RASPBERRY PRESERVES


Batter


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 2/3 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • FILLING-RASPBERRY JAM

Topping


  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons Cinnamon-Sugar Plus or cinnamon sugar

Directions


1) Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a standard muffin tin. Or line with 12 paper or silicone muffin cups (OR 24 MINIS), and grease the cups with non-stick vegetable oil spray; this will ensure that they peel off the muffins nicely.
2) In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream together the butter, vegetable oil, and sugars till smooth.
3) Add the eggs, beating to combine.
4) Stir in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla.
5) Stir the flour into the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour and making sure everything is thoroughly combined.
6) Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared pan, filling the cups nearly full.
7) Bake the muffins for 15 to 17 minutes, or until they're a pale golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the middle of one of the center muffins comes out clean.
8) Remove them from the oven, and let them cool for a couple of minutes.  Pipe the jelly into each one. Melt the butter for the topping (this is easily done in the microwave).
9) Dip each one into the butter, then roll in the cinnamon-sugar. 
10) Serve warm, or cool on a rack and wrap airtight. Store for a day or so at room temperature.  KING ARTHUR RECIPE

*****  IF YOU PREFER, PIPE THE JELLY INTO THE MUFFINS WHEN THEY ARE OUT OF THE OVEN AND COOL ENOUGH TO HANDLE.
