Jam Cupcakes


Last week I shared with you the recipe for Jam Cupcakes from Martha Stewart. And since today is the last day of the giveaway for her Cupcake Book, I wanted to get these cupcakes done. I had bought the raspberries and I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I decided to whip up a batch and share them with you. Because it was Semi-Homemade Sunday, it was late and I was really tired, I decided just to use a box mix that I had in the pantry. (Sorry, Martha) But I can still share with you how I made them.

I started with the cupcakes, of course, and red raspberry jam.


I got out my handy little apple corer and filled them using this technique.


And then put the plugs back in


I frosted them with chocolate frosting and topped with a fresh raspberry.



Note: Next time I won’t put quite as much filling in. I usually use pudding in the middle, and I think when using jam, a little goes a long way.

I received a very nice email from a reader that had made them using homemade strawberry jam. Yum! There are endless possibilites for these cupcakes.

    The cupcakes sound really yummy! Especially with the Chocolate Frosting on top!

  2. These look wonderful! I think instead of the chocolate frosting I would make them with cream cheese frosting. Neat idea on how to fill them! Thanks for sharing.
