BERRY AND JAM MUFFINS


Love these muffins...warm sweet berries in every bite! Such a nice way to enjoy a cold winter's morning!


Berry and Jam Muffins
Adapted from Joy the Baker
Makes 6 jumbo muffins

6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup whole milk
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup frozen or fresh berries (I used frozen mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries)
3 Tablespoons berry jam (I used raspberry jam)

For the topping:
3 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Put a rack in the upper third of oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Generously butter muffin cups or line with cupcake papers.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over moderately low heat; remove from heat. Whisk in milk, egg, yolk and vanilla until well combined.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add milk mixture and stir until just combined. Gently but thoroughly fold in the berries and the jam.

Divide batter among muffin cups and spread evenly.


For the topping:
Combine all the topping ingredients in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over batter in cups.

Bake until golden and crisp and a wooden pick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, 18-22 minutes for regular or about 22-25 for jumbo. Cool in pan on a rack for 15 minutes, then run a knife around edges of muffin tops and carefully remove from cups. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Black Hills...

My mother, children and I went to the Black Hills of South Dakota for the weekend; one of my favorite places. It is a beautiful drive across the state: the endless serene plains, then the badlands slowly rise in the western horizon followed by the majestic Black Hills, "an island of trees in a sea of grass" or snow in this case!

Yes, snow and more snow...6-8 inches of powder fell that day. The snow was gorgeous but became spectacular when we were surrounded by fire! Forrest Service started burning slash piles surrounding the house and throughout the forest. The fires burned all day, night and into the morning! It was quite a sight to see!


The kids burned energy climbing!
