Ugh! I doubled the recipe because of all the great reviews & followed it EXACTLY. When I checked on the muffins after 15 minutes they were almost burnt. They did not taste of apricots at all, but they did have a weird after taste. Bummer because i really wanted to love these!

I've made this with Sugar-Free Raspberry Preserves and it came out great. Good warm or cold.

I used orange marmalade and vanilla extract, instead of almond. They were delicious.

I love this!!! I used Strawberry instead of Apricot because that's what I had on hand and I used mini muffin tin also. A great simple muffin.

I made this with homemade strawberry rhubarb jam. The taste was okay, and it smelled delicious but I found that the muffins were so thick I was full before I could finish one.

OMG these are amazing!!! I didn't have apricot preserves, so I used sugar free orange marmalade. I used half all purpose white flour, and half Atkins Baking Mix, and I used vanilla in place of almond extract. They are soooo good, moist, tasty, I can't wait to make them again. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

incredible. fluffy and moist. i made this with strawberry jam because i was out of apricot, but i will be heading to the store to get the apricot. subbed vanilla for the almond extract, as i was out of almond, so i'll have to buy that too. thank god it only makes 6, or i'd have eaten them all day.
