Jam Muffin Tips

One thing to keep in mind when making jam-filled muffins is that the jam can sometimes leak out during baking, causing the muffins to stick to the pan. To prevent this, make sure to only fill the muffin cups about 2/3 of the way full, and try to keep the jam in the centre of the muffin. 

Storage

Once the muffins have cooled completely, they can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

If you need to keep them for longer, you can store them in the fridge for up to a week. Simply place the muffins in a plastic bag or airtight container and store them in the fridge.

If you have a surplus of muffins and want to store them for even longer, you can freeze them. Wrap each muffin individually in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer bag. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. To defrost, simply remove them from the freezer and let them come to room temperature.

It’s important to note that the texture of the muffins may change slightly after being frozen and defrosted, but they will still be delicious.
