INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup fat-free or light strawberry yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp fat free milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

METHOD:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190.  Line a muffin tin with papers and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and whisk to combine.  Make a well in the center and set aside.
  3. In another bowl add the yogurt, butter, milk and egg and whisk to combine.  Pour into the well in the flour mixture and using a scraper/spatula, lightly mix the wet into the dry until just combined.
  4. Drop one tablespoon of batter into the prepared muffin cups and top with 1 teaspoon of jam.  Top evenly with the remaining batter.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the 1 tbsp of sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over the tops of each muffin.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until centers are done.  Cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Note: you could change this recipe by adding different flavored yogurts and jam.  Blueberry or Blackberry would be outstanding.
