Is Fall coming? I found muffin recipes....

I saw these muffin recipes on the Real Food For Real People site this morning and started thinking about fall. I wish we would get a cold front. Just cool enough to have 70 degree weather during the day. I am READY for fall. Take a look at these recipes and give them a try.

Caryn says: A while ago there was an urban legend going about that was about Jordan Marsh Blueberry muffins. It was Just that, a legend. I grew up just north of Boston where the famous muffins came from. The Muffins hold some great memories of my Aunt Janice and some trips to Jordan's basement on the T. I don't know if this is really the recipe, but boy, it comes so close I can smell the subway! And they taste best if you don't use muffin papers but grease the pan with shortening. Makes them crispy.

If you're using frozen berries, be sure to add them in their frozen state so they don't bleed into the batter.

It's a fall day here in Victoria BC and I'm lovin' it. For us fall is rainy and cooler. This am the rain soaked my dry gardens - I could feel the earth just gulping it the drink. Now the sun is back - oh blessed Sept. I hope I have 2 1/2 cups of blueberries left on my bushes - if not I shall buy some to try the recipe - so appealing, muffins and tea on a cool fall day - thanks.

Thanks, Lucy! I am looking for some good muffin recipes!

I was thinking of doing a post on recipes, and now, from your post, it seems to be a good idea.

Have a good weekend.

Yum, muffins! I like them crispy on the outside better too, plus they seem to hold together better. They all sound so good, especially the cranberry orange ones which I may try soon. Our weather has been warm again lately but the leaves are turning.

I love muffins, so I better not make any. I am trying to lose right now and I know me. I can just imagine getting them hot and fresh out of the oven and smearing butter all over them, and that would be the last you would ever see of it. lol!

thanks for the recipes, I will print them anyway in case I go on a binge.

I made the blueberry muffins with whole wheat and honey. Oh man were they GOOD!

At 4:55 PM, Blogger Lucy Stern said...

Hoots musings, Glad to hear a good report. How much whole wheat did you use? I just ground some wheat a couple of days ago.
