Got Eggs? Got Berries?? Let's Bake!

There's something wonderful about having hens - could it be all those fresh eggs?? Mmmmmm! Something to remember: If your recipe calls for the eggs to be 'room temperature', BELIEVE IT! Most baked goods turn out better if the eggs are room temperature.

I found a neat recipe today, and I adapted it to include something I just love - BERRIES! Of course you've read my previous post about the 'not so good' Blackberries.... and you know I won't be using any of THOSE for my baking today! However, it IS Blueberry time in Michigan, and I just happened to get a quart of them at the store today. Here's my recipe adaptation:

Blueberry Muffin Doughnuts

2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 c. plus 1/2 t. butter, divided
1-1/2 c. sugar, divided
1 egg, beaten
3/4 c. milk
1 c. fresh blueberries
2 t. cinnamon

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon butter, 1/2 cup sugar, egg and milk. Fold in fresh blueberries. Fill 6 large greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or when muffins begin to pull away from sides of cup. Remove immediately from pan. Melt the remaining butter; roll muffins in butter. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; roll muffins in mixture. Makes 6 large muffins.

Ahh yes, nutmeg and blueberries are so good together. These really DO look delectable! Get yourself a Farmer's Market booth, sell egg, coops and these babies!
