Guest Post from Lubna of Yummy Food | Blueberry Jam Microwave Muffins

The guest post session in my blog comes ad hoc but of the writers, chief thinkers and executers whose blog I love to read / admire, virtually drool and more. Today’s post is a special post from yet another long time virtual blog buddy Lubna from Yummy Food. Hop over to her space and drool over the wonderful dishes and treats, specially the microwave treats that Lubna makes in a jiffy. Her blog run’s a Ramadan Special Fast to Feasting event every year, introducing new guest writers with their yummily delightful treat. 

I have been wanting to introduce Lubna to my writers for a very long time, but time and occasion didnt fit right.Days passed and months and we are in winter now! Lubna came up with her a totally innovative Microwave Muffins and the wait was totally worth it!!!This post was intended for November.Having said that since I am still holidaying until mid January,we decided to bring the delicious treat to cover my absence.
 There is hardly any microwave recipe in this blog and thats what makes this post special. The guest posts brings some spice and flavour in their own speciality and thats exactly what Lubna has brought for us. Why not treat your family and friends this christmas with some Microwave Muffins..
Thank you Lubna for taking time and writing such a delectable treat post !

Nearly a month back I think…I bought
blueberry jam from a local bakery shop. Once I tried the jam sandwiching
between the whole wheat bread slices….but neither Lil’M nor her ‘papa’ liked
it….and gradually the jam bottle vanished from dining table and reached
kitchen cabinet…over the period of time…the bottle took backseat in the cabinet
Last evening when Lil’M was having in-house
doll party with her friends and requested me to make something for her
friends…I thought of making muffins instantly as making muffins in microwave
is something I love the most…While gathering the ingredients to make muffins…I
saw the blueberry jam bottle peeking behind the flour jar. Quickly picked it up
and started working on making the muffins…..

First I thought to mix up the jam in the
flour and then I thought of adding jam to whipping cream and top it on the
muffins….but finally I decided to go by making jam centred muffins. Though the
jam was not exactly in the centre of the muffins…as they are made in
microwave….the blueberry jam has given a wonderful taste to the muffins and the
kiddo loved the taste of blueberry jam in muffins and gulped them in no time…..

Long back I have been asked by Sandhya to
do a guest post on her blog Sandhya’s
….Busy or call it laziness….or say adjusting to new things….or blame
on poor internet connection which keeps me away from virtual world most of the
time….the post got postponed….but Sandhya let me tell you…I never forgot about
the post….When I sent her a message regarding these muffins….she happily agreed
to have them at her blog. So here is the recipe for delicious, soft and yum
Blueberry Muffins which are made in microwave. Thank you Sandhya for having me
over here….Hope you all love trying out these delectable muffins for your loved
