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 crumble, that you can make with almost any kind of seasonal fruits
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 recipe, Chef!
Yellow Plums Muffins
- 1 Greek yogurt (150 g)
- 75 g milk
- 75 g vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 Greek yogurt container of sugar
- 2 and 1/2 Greek yogurt container of all-purpose flour
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 45 yellow plums
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder in a large bowl.
In another bowl whisk the egg, Greek yogurt, milk and vegetable oil until you get an homogeneous batter.
Pour into the powders mixture and stir until batter is just blended.
Remove the stones of the plums. Cut 15 of them into pieces. Add them to the batter.
Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full.
Add 2 plums cut in half in the center of each muffin.
Bake 20 minutes. Check baking with a toothpick: insert into the center, if it comes out clean it's baked. If not, bake another 1 or 2 minutes.
Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a grid.
