Visitors & Muffins

We've got visitors coming. YIPPEEE! Max and Helen have been in the state for nearly a week and we have been eagerly awaiting their arrival. They are at Cradle Mountain en route to our place tonight. Yay.
It is a home day today for Ingrid who decided we ought to really pick some flowers for them. The roses are STILL blooming beautiful so we settled on them.
No home day for Ingrid is complete without some baking. A couple of months ago I made some black currant jam... We sauce as in my true jam making signature style I made very runny jam. Great on pancakes. And in jam drop muffins which we made today. Yummy.
All you have to do is make a basic muffin batter (adapt one form a flavoured recipe). Fill muffin 1/3 full with batter, pop in a teaspoon of jam then top with more batter. I use a mix of wholemeal and plain flour and then reduce the sugar also as the jam has plenty!
Bake and enjoy.
