Mini Fig and Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins

Makes: 30


  • ¾ cup castor sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup vegetable/rice bran oil
  • ¾ cup full cream milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 jar Beerenberg Fig and Cinnamon Jam


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease mini muffin trays.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and egg ‘til light in colour and creamy.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and add the oil, milk and vanilla. Gently mix to combine.
  5. Fill the muffins tins with batter to ¾ full.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or ‘til firm to touch. The muffins do not colour so remember to check them with a skewer, even if they look pale.
  7. While the muffins are cooking, melt the butter.
  8. In a separate bowl, mix the extra sugar and cinnamon together.
  9. When the muffins are cooked, remove from the oven and immediately brush the muffin tops with melted butter. You can be generous.
  10. Gently lift the muffins from the tin with a spatula and roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Cool on a rack.
  11. Fit a piping bag with a small, straight nozzle. Fill the piping bag with the Jam and insert the nozzle into the top of the muffin and fill generously with the Jam. Let a dollop come through the top for decoration.

Ice Cream

Makes: 500ml
Preparation: 10 mins


  • 300ml thickened cream
  • ½ can condensed milk
  • 1 jar Beerenberg Jam of choice


  1. Beat together the cream and condensed milk ‘til soft peaks form.
  2. Gently swirl through your jam of choice.
  3. Place into a sealable container and freeze.

Flavour suggestions:

· Strawberry and cracked pepper

Add ½ jar Beerenberg Strawberry Jam and ½ tsp cracked black pepper.

· Blueberry and lemon

Add ½ jar Beerenberg Blueberry Jam and zest of 1 small lemon.

· Apricot and vanilla

Add ½ jar Beerenberg Apricot Jam and ½ tsp vanilla extract.

· Raspberry and almond

Add ½ jar Beerenberg Raspberry Jam and ½ cup ground almonds (you can purchase almond meal or grind in a blender/processor).

When ready to serve, allow the ice cream to sit out of the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to soften a little.

Serve in bowls with fresh fruit or compote, or scoop into waffle cones.

Fruit Jellies

Makes: 24
Preparation: 75 mins
Cooking time: 5 mins


  • 1 x jar Beerenberg Red Currant Jelly
  • 4 sheets gelatin leaves (gold strength)
  • castor sugar for rolling the jellies


  1. Empty the Red Currant Jelly into a saucepan and very gently heat to melt, do not boil.
  2. Place the gelatin leaves in a bowl and cover with cold water to soften. When soft squeeze out the excess water and add to the warm fruit jelly.
  3. Mix together, then pour into a shallow dish or tray. As an insurance policy, you can line the tray with cling wrap to make it easier to turn out.
  4. Refrigerate ‘til firm, approximately 1 hour.
  5. Unmould the jelly slab onto a work surface and cut into bite size pieces with mini shaped cookie cutters or a large, sharp knife. Toss the jellies in castor sugar just before serving. If this is done too early, the jelly will soak up the sugar.
  6. Unsugared jellies will keep refrigerated for up to 5 days, covered.
  7. Sugar as required.

Note: Beerenberg make a range of fruit jellies so choose a favourite flavour or make several to serve a variety of colours and flavours.
