1. Hello! I love your blog!
    Here is my favourite jam recipe (I’ve only made these once – they were delicious and cost me close to $15 on top of the flour/sugar/salt/soda I already had).

    ok, Brooklyn Brownie Cupcakes

    2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    1/4 cup soy yogurt
    1/2 cup black cherry preserves (jam)
    1/2 cup soy milk
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup canola oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract (I usually sub for vanilla so my cupcakes don’t taste nutty)
    2 tablespoons whiskey
    1 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    walnuts for garnish.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. line muffin pan with liners and spray each liner with non stick cooking spray (NB: i never do this)

    Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or the microwave or in a small pan over low heat.

    Mix the yogurt, preserves, soy milk, sugar, oil, vanilla extract, almond extract and whiskey in a large bowl. The preserves should be mixed in v. well and there should be no large clumps.

    Sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix thoroughly – if using a handheld mixer, mix for approx. 3 minutes on medium speed. Incorporate the melted chocolate.

    Fill the liners full. Bake 24-26 minutes. The tops may come out looking shiny, soft and undone but that is AOK, they’re supposed to look like that. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting (preferable chocolate).

    I’ve only ever made jam once, and it was just a simple strawberry jam. It was totally delicious, and it made he house smell SO good!. One of my favourite store bought jams is E.D. Smith Boysenberry – I love all the chewy berry bits. Truthfully though, I’ve never met a jam I didn’t like! :) -Eve

  3. I make a mean loaded oatmeal – flaxseeds, berries, nuts, soy or almond milk, etc – and top it off with a scoop of jam. It’s the morning equivalent of a bowl of ice cream.

  4. If you’re open to international entries then I LOVE raspberry it’s the best jam ever. A close second is blueberry.

    You’re in my blog roll & I’m about to RT you on Twitter! 😀
