Cottage Country Favorite..I read..
That works for me..This is from an old issue of Hello Magazine..Marty Curtis the purveyor of Marty's World Famous Café in Bracebridge Ontario let Hello publish this recipe..They looked so good I had to try..
His recipe says it makes 6 Jumbo muffins..I wanted just normal size..
You can get 13 normal size muffins with his recipe.
2 1/2 cups ap flour
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
3 tsps baking powder
1 8 oz package low fat cr cheese(I only had reg)
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup 2 % milk
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 -2 tsps lemon rind
1 cup frozen blueberries..I may have put a bit more
1 1/2 cups icing sugr
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon rind
1.Preheat oven to 375 F
Grease 6 jumbo muffin pan..I used muffin cups in a reg pan and made 13.
2.For the muffins whisk flour,sugar and baking powderin a bowl
3.Warm a knife in hot water,cut the cream cheese injulienne strips then pea sized bits warm the knife regularly and whisk the bits into the flour mixture..
(Confession..I cut into small pieces ..my cream cheese was soft and with impeccable hands I combined with my hands)
4.In another bowl whisk egs then whisk in oil..then milk ..lemon juice and rind.Add to the dry ings and mix only until combined
5.Add the blueberries and fold gently.
6.Fill the prepped pan to just under the bake line and bake 30-35mins
(They are gorgeous at this point:) )
Cool in pan for 30 mins.
Make glaze brush over muffins..you can add a bit of hot water if not thin enough.
The glaze is the added touch that makes these quite addictive.
Muffins and coffee and cottage country..sounds perfect....doesn't it?
