I found an old recipes book of my grandmother’s and decided to let her recipes and great cooking live on.

Original recipe makes 1 dozen

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Stir together flour, wheat germ, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together butter, egg and buttermilk. Stir milk mixture into dry ingredients; mix just until combined. Fill prepared muffin cups half full with batter. Make a depression in the center of each muffin and drop in 1 teaspoon of jam. Cover jam with additional batter.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
