Very Berry Muffins
These are my favorite summer muffins.
Any berry will do.
But lately the farmer's markets have been stocked w/ strawberries and blueberries, and they have been just delicious.
Very Berry Muffins:
1 1/3 cups sugar
zest of a lemon
1 stick of butter, softened
1/4 tsp almond extract
Mix all together until light and creamy.
Now add in a bit at a time:
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of almond flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Next, add in:
2/3 cup milk
1 cup of blueberries
cinnamon sugar for the top
375F for 25 minutes for normal size muffins.
For those of you asking where I get these large pretty paper baking liners (they are great, no sticking, and no cleaning up muffin tins)....I buy them online at amazon, or at Home Goods when I see them. They come in all sizes.
You probably answered this at one time, but…..
I imagine it would be fine to use almond meal, but the muffins will be denser, for sure.
Almond FLOUR makes everything lighter...I am preferring it to almond meal these days......except in frangipane or tarts.
