Plum muffins

I have recently seen plums in grocery shop. I bought them and decided to bake something. By something I mean muffins of course :). On this website I found yummy recipe. I have to say this one is my favourite. They are not only very tasty but look very good as well. Purple colour plums' skin look beautiful with nice golden baked dough.

Ingredients for 16 muffins:
  • 250g melted butter/margarine
  • 200g sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 350g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 8 big plums pitted and cut in four pieces
  • almond flakes
  • icing sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.
Melt the butter or margarine in a sauce pan or in microwave. Leave it on a side to cool down. In a meantime wash plums, remove the stones and cut the plums in fours. Mix the flour with baking powder.
Sift the sugar and salt into melted butter, whisk everything together until creamy. Add one egg at a time, whisking continuously. Fold in the flour. Do not over stir the dough, it should have consistency of pancakes batter.
Fill in 1/3 of muffin cases with the dough, put piece of plum and add the rest of the dough into all muffins. On the top of each muffin stick another piece of plum and sprinkle with almond flakes.  
Bake 25-30 min. Check with toothpick if they are baked in the middle. Cool them down on wire rack and dust with icing sugar.
