Muffin Mondays | Blood Orange Corn Muffins

IMG_0857

Sunshine in the form of muffins, that is what these are. The inspiration for these comes from amazing sunshine corn cakes from Clementine. They are delicate, crumbly and have a bit of a crunch from the gritty corn. They have a sweet zesty touch from thick bits of orange throughout the muffin and a lovely thin slice of orange baked on top. Those are sunshine corn cakes.

Inspired by these delicious beauties I picked up some super sweet blood oranges from the farmers market this weekend. Blood orange plus corn meal and flour make a perfect muffin. My muffins use blood oranges rather than regular oranges. Let pulp, more juice and zest. They are bright, sweet and bring a little sunshine to your morning!

Muffin Mondays | Apple Pie Muffins

It tastes like a pie! And a muffin! But serioulsy, it tastes like apple pie. Warm apple pie if you eat them hot out of the oven like it did. Two wonderful buttery worlds collide and the resulting muffin is everything you need this Thanksgiving. Thick juicy apples rolled in a sweet spicy mix of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. It all comes together to form a delicate muffin. The brown sugar oat crumble on top is the perfect pie (muffin) crust. Make sure to leave your apples in fairly large chuncks so they do not disappear into the muffin. This is afterall all about the apples. I used some beautiful tart honey crisp apples in this muffin.

If the thought of baking a pie for Thanksgiving is a little daunting, then why not bake apple pie muffins instead? I mean who doesn’t love muffins? I do!

Muffin Mondays | Peach Shortcake Muffins

Peaches check. Shortcake check. Muffinized yes! The glorious beauty of summer stone fruits, in this case ripe juicy peaches, stuffed into crumbly shortcake all tucked into a muffin form. Break them open hot out of the oven and slather them with fresh whipped cream and more fresh peaches, I mean what can be better? Enjoy these on the patio in the warm summer sunshine. Happiness.

I am so obsessed with summer stone fruits and want anything plum, peach or nectarine. Throwing them into my favorite baked goods only extends the pleasure. These muffins take no time to whip up. Butter is cut into the flour creating a biscuit like texture. The fragrant sweet peaches add umph to the dough. The whole thing is just lovely I tell ya!

Muffin Mondays | Cherry Sour Cream Muffins

Cherry sour cream muffins. Juicy, sweet, nutty. The sour cream gives them a richness that almost tastes like cheesecake. The muffin is loaded with ripe cherries that bleed sweet fruit juice with each bite. I used half almond meal and half flour to create a light crumbly texture that is buttery and luscious.

I topped a few with a brown sugar almond meal crumble, I topped some with toasted sliced almonds and the others I left simple and unadorned. I loved the varitety.

Enjoy summer cherries in muffin form!
