The cheapest food snack during recess in school must be the doughnut! It gives you the energy (in fact an overload of sugar!) you will need for the second part of school hours and holds off the hunger pangs till you reached home.  Doughnuts - its cheap, its filling and it satisfies your craving for the sweet!  Nowadays the humble snack with the hole  comes with all sorts of flavours and decorations imaginable and you can find people willing to queue for just a doughnut?!   

I loved this recipe for a doughnut muffin!  Recipe taken from The BBC Good Food magazine.
Ingredients needed: 120 gm caster sugar (more for the dusting) 200 gm plain flour, 1 tsp baking soda; 100 ml natural yogurt, 2 large eggs, 140 gm butter (melted)  and about 12 teaspoon of strawberry jam (or any other flavours of your choice) and vanilla extract.
It's so easy - just mixing the wet ingredients to dry ingredients.

Mixing the beaten eggs, yogurt and vanilla essence together with the melted butter.

Sift plain flour with baking soda and a bit of salt (not mentioned in recipe but I always add a pinch of salt when baking cakes etc). Pour the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.

Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the batter into the muffin tin.  Add a teaspoon of strawberry jam (I guess you can use any other flavours and this versatile recipe allows you to use up those bottles of jam in the fridge) and top with another tablespoon of batter to cover the jam. 

Bake at 180C for just 15 minutes and you have soft and fluffy muffin/doughnut with the melting jam in the center. You can dust some sugar over the muffins if desire.
Easy and delicious snack for tea-time.

Why not bake these for the Christmas breakfast?
