Apricot-Filled Muffins
cooking oil or nonstick cooking spray
1 cup all-purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup soy flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product -- thawed or 1 egg
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1/4 cup apricot spreadable fruit
peach, or raspberry

LIGHTLY coat twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking oil or nonstick spray; set aside. Stir together all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour, soy flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

COMBINE buttermilk, egg product or egg, and oil in another bowl or large measuring cup. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just till moistened (batter will be stiff).

SPOON about half of batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about one-third full. Place about 1 teaspoon of the spreadable fruit in the center of batter in each cup (if necessary make an indentation in batter with back of spoon). Top with remaining batter, dividing equally. Muffin cups will be about two-thirds full.

BAKE in a 400° oven for 15 to 18 minutes or till golden. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove muffins; serve warm. Makes 12 muffins.

MAKE-AHEAD TIP: Store baked muffins at room temperature, wrapped tightly in heavy foil, for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, bake in a 300° oven for 15 to 18 minutes
