I turned these Jelly Donut Muffins into a festive way to start off the day. Soft, sweet little muffins are rolled in granulated sugar and filled with your favorite jelly for a perfect breakfast or brunch treat to share with family, friends, or sweethearts alike!

Using a small cookie cutter to carve out a little heart shaped center is an easy way to turn an ordinary breakfast food into a special goody that everyone will love.

Serving Size: 100

Ingredients:
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ⅓ cup canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup jelly (I used raspberry, but you can use your favorite!)
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ¾ sugar
Directions for the Tops:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners, set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Combine well.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract together until well combined.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until just combined {don't overdo it, it's ok if there are a few lumps.}
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, portion batter into liners evenly. Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are domed and golden. {Test with a toothpick to make sure centers are done.}
  6. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes, or until cool enough to handle.
Directions for Assembly:
  1. Set up dipping station: Melted butter in one small bowl, granulated sugar in the other.
  2. Gently dip the top of each muffin in the melted butter, shaking lightly to remove excess, then press into sugar. Repeat with all muffins. Set on cooling rack.
  3. Gently press a small heart-shaped cookie cutter into the top of each muffin, pushing about half way in. Carefully remove cutter and the heart-shaped section of muffin. {Save for snacking!}
  4. Fill the heart shaped wells to top with jelly.
  5. Enjoy with your sweetheart!
