I am not a big fan of muffins. I just love the grease of The Doughnuts. Therefore, a beautiful and kind of healthier twist - Doughnuts - Muffins.
I always try to search for alternatives to avoid frying. And this one tastes really lovely. A combination of a crunchy crust with a juicy texture and some extra marmalade filling inside.
These lovely sweets are suitable for kids from the age of 2 plus, because of a possible egg white intolerance.
Total Time: 45 minutes
150g of cane sugar
200g of plain flour, sifted

In another large mixing bowl place eggs and yogurt. Mix well with a whisking spoon. Pour in vanilla extract and whisk some more.
Next, slowly add the dry mixture into the wet one (one third at a time). Knead with a mixer until the sugar is dissolved completely.
Starting adding the melted butter (one third at a time). Knead until homogenous texture.
Place 1 tablespoon of the dough into lightly greased muffin forms. Then, add 1 teaspoon of marmalade. Finish with 1 tablespoon of the dough. Smoothen the tops with your wet finger.
