Hazelnut plum muffins

This is really interesting combinations of flavours. Nutty, a little bit dry cake filled with plum jam. I like them very much and I think those who love nuts will be delighted. As usually they are very easy to make. The recipe comes from 'The Australian Women's Weekly. Muffins"

Ingredients for 12 - 14 muffins:
  • 90g butter or margarine
  • 370g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 125g hazelnut meal
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 250 ml milk
  • 12 - 14 tsp plum jam
  • 12 - 14 whole hazelnuts

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Melt the butter and set aside.

Place the flour, baking powder, hazelnut meal, sugar in a big bowl and whisk them together.

Break the egg into a separate jug and whisk with fork. Stir in the milk.

Pour the milk mixture and melted butter into a bowl with dry ingredients. Mix all ingredients together until just combined.The batter is very thick at that stage.

Spoon about one tablespoon of the batter into muffin cases. Then make a well in each muffin and place one teaspoon of plum jam inside. Top with muffin mixture. Place the whole hazelnut on top of each muffin. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. 
Cool down a few minutes then enjoy with a mug of tea or coffee:)

Enjoy !
