Yellow Plums Muffins

It is probably my favorite fruit of the season: the yellow plum!! Souvenir from my Alsace for sure…

I love the sweet taste of this little one. And since the season isn’t very long, I want to enjoy eating them as much as I can!

So today, I will introduce my yellow plums muffins!

You will already find several recipes on the blog with those yellow plums. A few ideas here:

– the yellow plum tart

– the roasted yellow plums cheesecake

– the crumble, that you can make with almost any kind of seasonal fruits

– the ginger bread, made with yellow plums jam.

Today the yellow plums muffins will be perfect for the after school snack (your kids will be grateful !!) or as a dessert if you serve them with a vanilla ice cream scoop for instance…

The result is fantastic: an easy and super quick recipe to make, and a delicious taste… And homemade!!

I make this recipe with Greek yogurt because I like its smoothness. You can also make it with your regular plain yogurt or even with mascarpone. In both cases, adjust your ingredient quantities (a Greek yogurt usually weights 150 g whereas a plain yogurt should be around 125 g). And if you decide to make this recipe with mascarpone (which has more fat), reduce the oil quantity by 20%.

Here is for the math part! 😉

For the rest, it’s super easy! You can even take frozen yellow plums (of course it’s better with fresh ones, but as I mentionned earlier it’s not always available at your grocery store…) or canned ones. In both cases, drain them well in order to avoid adding liquid to your batter.

The utensils:

My mixing bowl

A good whisk

And muffin molds (De Buyer for me here).

I think you’re ready to start…

The recipe, Chef!
