Plum and Greek Yogurt Muffins

I am quite sure that the idea of making muffins is something that appeals to almost everybody. From combination like banana or raspberry to chocolate… the undeniable taste of a warm homemade muffin is always a big success.

I really enjoyed making muffins. Particularly little ones! I think little muffins are more interesting and surely prettier! And of course they cook faster than the standard size- muffins. I like using dried or fresh fruit into the muffin batter. I believe is an exceptional way to eat more fruits. Not to mention incredibly tasteful!

I’ve made these Plum Muffins with Greek yogurt and Brown Sugar. I’ve been experimenting with this recipe for the past two weeks. And I have to say the muffins turned out absolutely fabulous. Using the Greek yogurt instead of milk create a moist and buttery texture. The right balance of acidity between ingredients takes the muffin to a completely different level. Light and utterly delicious!


This is my favorite sweet treat of the week!

My husband loves plums but when I bake muffins no one seems to care about them at home. But if the same recipe appears in a pound cake shape it will disappear in a day.
I will try to bake them this coming weekend.

Saludos,

Aldy, cómo estás?
Me encantan los muffins, pero nunca he preparado unos con ciruelas, no quedan demasiado húmedos?, acabo de hacer unos con manzana y pera pero no me gustó el resultado.
Se ven divinos, besos y buen finde.

@ Marcela,



@ Gaby,


GRACIAS MIS CHICAS LINDAS!!!

Al Dente Gourmet said...

Hilmar, Que linda! Gracias por tantas dulzura :)

Besotes :)

Al Dente Gourmet said...

Kako, Te cuento que estos muffins de ciruela quedan con una textura fabulosa. Lo que pasa es que la Ciruela es una fruta Carnosa. En cambio la pera y la manzana son frutas de pura agua y los resultados no quedan igual.
Ojala puedas probar estos de ciruelas!

Besotes, Aldy

Erika said...

A mi también me gusta todo lo que viene en tamaño mini. Estos muffins te quedaron de película!
Cariños

Kako said...

Los haré Aldy, gracias por tu respuesta.
Me han dicho que el aceite de canola es mas sabroso para los horneados, veré como queda.
Un beso.
