Fruit-Filled Muffins

2/3 cup milk

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 egg or equivalent egg substitute

2 cups baking mix, such as Bisquick

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup fruit preserves, any flavor

2/3 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottoms only of 12 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2 x1 1/4 -inches, or line with paper baking cups. Stir milk, oil and egg in medium bowl until blended.

Stir in remaining ingredients -- except fruit preserves and powdered sugar -- just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among cups.

Drop one level teaspoon fruit preserves onto center of batter in each cup. Bake 13 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; remove from pan.

Drizzle with glaze. Make glaze by stirring the powdered sugar with three to four teaspoons water in small bowl until smooth.

Fruit-filled muffins are quick, portable breakfast.
