TWD #57: Have you seen the muffin man?

To be honest I am not much of a muffin (wo)man.

I kinda feel like baking/eating a muffin is cheating on my cupcake addiction so I rarely make muffins. Besides what’s the point? Cupcakes are a vehicle for frosting and since muffins typically don’t have frosting, there is no point. HAHA

This week Sihan of Befuddlement chose the Blueberry Crumb Cake for all us TWD bakers. You can find the recipe on her blog.

Now I know you are probably all confused b/c there is no “muffin” in Blueberry Crumb Cake but since I was not in the mood to juggle all of my pyrex pans to find the 8×8 square pan (btw if anyone has a easy-to-access pyrex storage idea I am ALL ears!) I decided to go with my cupcake pan. Plus individual servings means portion control, travel-bility and sharing distribution. Score!

Oh yeah I didn’t do blueberries either… I just broke all the rules this time!

What I learned this week:
I really hate using my pyrex pans b/c the way I store them now they are all stacked on top of each other and of course the one I use the most is the 9X13 and the 8×8, both of which are on the bottom.

Blueberry Raspberry Crumb Cake Muffins
Recipe adapted from Baking: From My Home To Yours, Dorie Greenspan

I decided to switch out the walnuts for almonds.

… and the blueberries for raspberries.

I love raspberry-almond-lemon flavors!

I filled cupcake liners about 2/3-3/4 full.

I got 14 muffins and baked for about 30-35 minutes.


Husband rating: A
He had a muffin (or 2) with his coffee and raved about this recipe. He especially loved the almond-crumb topping. It probably would have been an A+ if I had used blueberries though. He’s more of a blueberry than raspberry man.

Wifey rating: A/A+
I totally cheated on my cupcakes and I liked it! (I am currently listening to “I Kissed a Girl” by Katie Perry). Love the raspberry, almond and lemon flavors. Always a great combination for me. The crumb topping was delicious! Definitely will make again.
