Easy to Make Muffins Recipe

I show you how we made these muffins from scratch.

It is a basic muffin mix and then we added marmalade – orange jelly, peanut butter, chocolate pieces and raspberry jam – jelly

We made these with different fillings because my 83 year old mother was baking them with her 4 year old great grandson Quinn.

He had great fun and was delighted to be helping his grandma.

It did not take too long for them to cook so he was able to see the end result and enjoy eating some too.
