Plum, oat and almond muffins

Dense, moist, sweet muffins with plum and almond chunks. The recipe comes form this website.

Ingredients for 10 - 12 muffins:

  • 350g stoned plums ( I had frozen and thawed them before baking)
  • 1 egg
  • 115g melted butter
  • 150 ml milk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 115g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 100g cane sugar
  • 85g rolled oats
  • 25g almond flakes
  • lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp almond flakes
Wash the plums. Remove stones. 6 plums cut into 24 wedges the rest of them cut into chunks. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Melt the butter and set aside to cool down.

Whisk the egg, add the milk, butter and almond extract. Mix all ingredients well.

Into a big bowl place the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and stir them well. Then add the oats, almond flakes and mix again. At last add chopped plums and freshly grated lemon zest. Combine all the ingredients.

Then pour in the wet ingredients. Combine all ingredients until just moist. 

Spoon the batter into paper cases 3/4 full. Sprinkle with rolled oats, place 2 - 3 plum wedges on top of the each muffin, then sprinkle with sugar and almond flakes.

Bake 20 - 25 minutes until well risen and golden on the top.
Enjoy !
