I haven't used a box of Jiffy Muffins, probably since college. In college, they were kind of a staple. We could get 4 boxes for a dollar, and they really helped fill out a meal of canned soup.
The other day, I came across a recipe for augmenting the chocolate muffin mix, so I thought why not buy a couple of boxes and give it a try?
I like cooking hot breakfast for my kids in the morning, but some mornings it seems like time is short. Rather than fall back on cold cereal, I tried the muffins. It's a quick and simple breakfast, just add fruit and scrambled eggs.
Jiffy Jam Muffins
2 boxes Jiffy chocolate muffin mix
your favorite jam - we used strawberry
Mix muffins according to package directions. Line muffin tin with paper liners. *Drop in 2 Tbsp. of batter, top with a tsp. of jam, cover with another 2 Tbsp. of batter. Bake according to package directions.
*I used the Pampered Chef medium scoop, not quite full. It's perfect - about half the amount of the large muffin scoop.
Quick, easy and delicious. An irresistible combination.
What do you make for breakfast?
