These Jam and Cream Muffins are a quick, easy and tasty muffin that’s perfect for freezing and popping straight into the kid’s school lunch boxes.

These delicious Jam and Cream Muffins are great for a treat with an afternoon cuppa or kid’s school lunchboxes. These muffins taste just like a jam and cream scone – they are so yummy! 

I used to love to bake school lunch box goodies that can be frozen (like these muffins). It made school mornings much less stressful because the snacks are available, ready to be popped straight into the school lunchboxes.
