Jam-Filled Almond Muffins

From: EatingWell

A crunchy topping of sugared toasted almonds and a surprise filling of almond-scented berry jam makes these whole-wheat muffins reminiscent of Danish pastries. They are perfect for a special breakfast or brunch.

Servings: 1 dozen muffins
Prep: 30 mins
Total: 1 hr
Rated : 
 by 5 people
1 1/4 cups  whole-wheat flour
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
1/4 teaspoon  salt
2   large eggs
1/2 cup  packed light brown sugar
1 cup  buttermilk, (see Tip)
1/4 cup  orange juice
1/4 cup  canola oil
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
1/3 cup  blackberry, blueberry, raspberry or cherry jam
1/4 teaspoon  almond extract
1/2 cup  sliced almonds
1 tablespoon  granulated sugar
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
2. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
3. Whisk eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Add buttermilk, orange juice, oil and vanilla; whisk to blend. Add to the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
4. Scoop half the batter into the prepared pan. Mix jam and almond extract; drop a generous teaspoonful into the center of each muffin. Spoon on the remaining batter, filling each muffin cup completely. Sprinkle with almonds, then sugar.
5. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and spring back when touched lightly, 15 to 25 minutes. Loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
Tip: You can use buttermilk powder in place of fresh buttermilk. Or make "sour milk": mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
