Lemon Surprise Muffins

The traditional recipe for lemon surprise muffins usually involves blueberries.  And lemon and blueberries go together fabulously.  But this recipe does not use blueberries… and therein lies the surprise!

Lemon Surprise Muffins


2 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

½ cup margarine, softened

½ cup milk

1 egg

¼ cup lemon juice

1 tsp. lemon rind

1/3 cup Kraft grape jelly or apricot preserves

Combine dry ingredients. Add combined margarine, milk, egg, lemon juice and lemon rind, mixing just until moistened. Pour into greased medium-size muffin pan, filling each cup ½ full. Dot generously with preserves, top with remaining batter. Bake at 425º, 20 to 25 minutes.

1 dozen.
