Blueberry Lemon “Muffin Tops”

September 4, 2008

Like just about everyone and their mom, I went wild for fresh blueberries this summer. The first few quarts I purchased were promptly consumed, fresh as can be. However, the third quart I bought wasn’t so sweet, so what seemed the natural conclusion to me was to bake them into something sweet and tasty.

Because I often rush out the door in the morning, I don’t always have time for a hot breakfast, which is my preference. Cereal is hard to pack and go if you’re driving (or carpooling), and every time I buy milk and leave it at work so that I can eat when I get in, I end up wasting most of it (because my commute is 45-60 minutes long, I am also starving by the time I get to work). Blueberry scones seemed to be a good bet, and so that’s the idea I went with.

Fold the blueberries gently into the batter mixture.

Banana Crumble Muffins

August 27, 2008

These are some seriously moist, yummy muffins with a fun crunchy top! Rice, her partner, my partner, a coworker and my boss agree. I was going to take more than 2 small ones to work, but I ate them. So there!

I got the recipe from the My Baking Addiction blog post called My Favorite Banana Crumb Muffins. I can see why they’re her favorite. I made a few alterations (my recipe changes are below). If you’re interested in her adapted recipe (adapted from allrecipes) please see her post. I wish I had added nuts, 1/2 – 3/4 cups toasted walnuts would have done nicely.

Banana Crumb Muffins

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 large bananas, mashed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Get ready for some muffins!
