These muffins are just like a hand held fruit cobbler...
But let's start at the beginning...
I wanted to do something with the last few perfect plums from our Harry & David box, so I googled, and came up with this fantastic recipe from foodgeeks. I altered it as follows, and it's currently my favorite muffin recipe. This is a cobbler-lovers dream muffin.
PLUM NUTTY COBBLER-MUFFINS
2 Firm Plums, peeled & sliced in 6 wedges
2 C. Flour
1 C. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Sea Salt
4 Tbsp. Earth Balance, melted
1/4 C. Coconut Oil
3/4 C. Vanilla Silk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. Coconut Extract
Cinnamon, to dust the top
Heat oven to 350* Prepare the fruit.
Mix dry ingredients, add wet. Scoop batter into 12 lightly greased muffin cups.
Insert a plum wedge into each cup - they'll stick out and that's fine. Sprinkle with Cinnamon.
Bake for 30 minutes. Let them cool a little before you devour them.
BTW: We're home from California, and I'll share more of our adventures after I unpack! :o)
