Easy Muffins

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1 egg
strawberry jam
shortening or cooking oil spray

Preheaat oven to 400F degrees (200C). Grease 12 muffin pans with some shortening or cooking oil spray or put a paper bake cup into each muffin cup.

Measure the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into medium mixing bowl. Stir to mix with a wooden spoon. Use a fork to beat the egg in the small mixing bowl. Add milk and oil. Beat with fork until well mixed. Pour milk mixture over flour mixture.

Stir with wooden spoon only until all flour is wet. Batter should be lumpy. Do not stir too much or muffins will be hard.

Spoon half the batter into muffin pans until each cup is about 1/3 full. Put 2 teaspoonfuls of jelly or jam on top of the batter in each cup. Fill muffin cups with remaining batter.

Bake until muffins are golden. This will take 20 to 25 minutes. Turn off oven. Remove muffins from oven. Remove muffins from pan with a table knife. Cool 5 minutes. This recipe is from Stephanie, age 13, from New Zealand.
