This recipe has only 3 tablespoons of sugar! From Reader's Digest, Great Recipes for Good Health --
For variety, fill muffins with a small piece of cheese, a prune, or ½ tsp chopped raisins instead of the jam.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Using one large or two small muffin pans, lightly coat 12 2½-inch cups with non-stick cooking spray or use paper liners and no spray.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
Melt margarine in small saucepan over moderate heat. Combine in a small bowl with buttermilk, then beat in the egg with a fork. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring only enough to moisten.
Spoon half the batter evenly into the muffin cups. With the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation in the batter in each muffin cup, then spoon 1 tsp jam into each one. Top with the remaining batter, spreading to cover the filling.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
