Prep Time 20 mins
Servings 14 muffins


  • muffin tin


Homemade Strawberry Jam

  • 3 cups frozen strawberries(400 grams)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated


  • 2 cup white flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs demarara sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 M egg
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest( zest orange before juicing it!)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs orange juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Oatmeal Streusel

  • 1/8 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup sifted white flour
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats(old fashioned oats)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar


Homemade Strawberry Jam

  • Add frozen strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and grated ginger to a pot. Bring to a boil and let cook for 4 minutes, till the fruit is soft. Using a potato masher, mash the strawberries- some pieces are fine! Lower the heat to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes, until the mixture has thickened and looks like jam. Don't be tempted to cook it for longer or it will get hard, the jam will thicken more as it cools. Pour into a glass container and let it cool. There will be extra!


  • Preheat the oven to 175 C/350 F.
    Combine the dry ingredients(flour, demarara sugar, baking powder, and salt) in a large bowl. Using a whisk is the best!
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the oil, egg, orange zest and juice, water, and vanilla extract. Whisk to break up the egg, and then switch to a rubber spatula.
  • Gently fold dry ingredients into the wet in the centre of the bowl and mix just until combined. Don't over mix- this makes a tough muffin!

Oatmeal Streusel

  • In a small bowl, combine the oil, flour, oats, and sugar and mix together with your fingers until crumbs form.

Make and Bake

  • Line your muffin tins with paper liners.
  • Fill up the muffin liners pretty full with batter. A bit more than 3/4 of the way full- but with some space for jam. On top of each place a dallop(1 1/2 Tablespoon) of homemade strawberry jam. Sprinkle over oatmeal streusel, pressing the top lightly with your fingertips to help stick the struesel on to the muffin.
    Bake for about 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center(not a part with jam in it), comes out clean.
    Store at room temp. in an airtight container.
