1/3 cup 75 mL Crisco® Canola Oil
1/2 cup 125 mL Carnation® Regular, 2% or Fat Free Evaporated Milk
1 egg
3/4 cup 175 mL unsweetened applesauce
2 cups 500 mL Robin Hood® Nutri Flour Blend™ Tastes Like White
2/3 cup 150 mL granulated sugar
1 tbsp 15 mL baking powder
1/4 tsp 1 mL cinnamon
1/4 tsp 1 mL salt
1/3 cup 75 mL Smucker’s® Pure Strawberry Jam


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºF). Grease 10 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  2. Combine wet ingredients (excluding jam) in medium-sized bowl. Add flour blend, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir just until combined.
  3. Add strawberry jam, mixing lightly. Divide evenly among the 10 prepared muffin cups, pouring water into the 2 unused cups.
  4. Bake in centre of preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and top springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in pan.


  • Stirring a muffin batter too vigorously will create tough muffins with pointed, peaked tops. Only stir the batter until all the dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Pouring water into unused muffin cups will prevent the cups from burning and the pan from warping.
