Jam Swirled Eggless Muffins # June Challenge for Baking Eggless

This month Priya from Priya's Versatile Recipes challenged the members of Gayathri's Eggless Baking Group to bake these fantastic Eggless Jam Swirl Muffins.

The original recipe, the one with eggs, was by Patricia of Technicolor Kitchen . She had created these amazing muffins  by swirling some blackberry lemon jam into Dorie's lemon poppy seed muffins... and we followed suit.

since the only jams i had in the kitchen were the orange marmalade and some apricot jam, I baked my first trial batch with applesauce as the egg substitute and raspberry coulis (for the color) and some apricot jam. Think the coulis made the batter a bit more soggy than desired and i ended up baking the muffins for 30 minutes. They looked and tasted fine but were a little dense. i was not completely satisfied and decided to make another batch. this time i used sweetened condensed milk as a substitute for eggs and the did not try too hard to make the swirl. mostly because i used orange marmalade and that wouldn't really show up. the result was e-x-c-e-l-l-e-n-t. The muffins were super soft and delicious. and the whole batch vanished faster than i would have liked. I had halved the recipe and had made 9 muffins and Mr MN and I finished it all within a day. we simply kept feeling hungry-for-the-muffins... 

now the recipe...
Eggless Jam Swirl Muffins (makes 9)
Adapted from Technicolor Kitchen

  • 3 tbsp ground sugar (i ground it in the coffee machine) 
  • the dry ingredients to be sifted together
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/8 tsp salt
  • the wet ingredients
    • 90 ml sour cream or yogurt (i used sc)
    • 3 oz sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup jam
  what i did
  • i preheated the oven to 400 degrees F ; buttered a standard muffin-cupcake pan ; sifted the dry ingredients together and kept them aside and whisked the wet ingredients together until they were well blended.
  • i then added the ground sugar to the sifted flour mixture and mixed them, then  poured the wet ingredients into flour-sugar mixture and using a fork, lightly whisked the mixture. *
  • next i added the jam to the mixture, whisked it lightly and pouring the batter into the prepared pan, transferred it to preheated oven and baked for 20 minutes, that is until the surface turned golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin came out clean.*
  • then removing the baking pan from the oven, i left it to cool down completely before taking out the muffins and relishing them.
* see my notes 

  •  It is really important to whisk the mixture lightly otherwise the muffins get tough.
  •  Though these are called Jam Swirl Muffins, its best not to try to hard to create the swirl. it   does not  show up like a marble cake swirl even if you try very hard. trying too hard only makes the muffins tougher...  
 I tried both the "don'ts" the first time and ended baking this set and regretting.

So much for today. Hope you had a relaxed weekend. we spent a regular Sunday shopping, cleaning and planning for the 4th of July weekend.
