These were great. Super moist and cakey. My changes: Since my oven likes to burn things I definitely went with 350*. It seems like the outside is caramelized from all the sugar, which is probably where people are getting their burning issues. Because they're so sticky you want to either use muffins or grease your pan really well. For depth of flavor I did 1/4 cup of reg sugar with 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and added about a teaspoon of almond extract. They were super sweet, if don't like sweet muffins, cut the sugar. I think that the jam mostly adds sweetness, I only get a hint of strawberry. If you want more berry flavor, you'll need to add berries, or some kind of extract/flavoring. I also used a cup of reg flour and cup of whole wheat. I imagine if I had used cake flour, it would have been more akin to cupcakes. I also just realized I used soda not powder, which probably accounts for super floaty texture. Also, I had forgotten about the great muffin tin disaster of 08, and so I only had mini-muffin tins on hand. I made four dozen mini muffins, and they were done in about 10 minutes, quite possibly less. Just enough time for one pan to finish cooking while I filled the other.
