It’s time for #MuffinMonday again! I am so happy to be back after missing last month (I was neck deep in #CookoutWeek recipes!)- and I do enjoy being busy, but sometimes things work out that way.
I’ve been pretty busy this month as well but things are slowing down for a moment before being really busy again in August! Almost all may days are filled up and I have several yummy summertime recipes I will do my best to squeeze in there before the change of seasons arrives Mid-September.
And I still don’t know where half the year has gone.
But for today I took some summer fruits that are wildly abundant right now- both blueberries and peaches, and spun them together in a tasty muffin. The streusel is from a base mix which I used in #BrunchWeek for my Cinnamon Roll Pizza if you recall that one. It is a topping that stems from the restaurant industry and bakeries that do a lot of this. It will make more than you need, but just bag it up and freeze it and pull it out whenever you want to sprinkle on muffins, coffee cake or the like. It saves a lot of time having it ready. You can see it has a golden color and is perfectly suited for making crumb cake.
Tomorrow is still open and I haven’t decided what I will put up yet. I’ll take a peek in my files and surprise you. I do have a lot of recipes tucked away so if you are hunting for a particular type you can always message me in the comments and if I have it, I will give it priority. Also, if I don’t have something but it sounds good and you mention it, it will be more likely to happen. So don’t feel bashful or shy about filling me up with ideas and requests.
Wednesday I am doing Peach Crumble Bars which are some bar cookies with a peach fruit filling and a crumble topping (obviously, because of the title!)
Thursday I am doing an updated version of a cookie my Mom used to make (Hermits) that I always loved. Hers came from Betty Crocker, but this one will be my own take on it. And mine surpass that one if I must say so myself. I’ve gotten pretty good at developing new cookie recipes.
I hope you join me each day! And if you use FaceBook as well, you can also follow me on my blog page there—> Palatable Pastime as well as my recipe group where lots of friends share recipes with the members—->Palatable Recipes. There is lots of new stuff all the time- including things that aren’t posted here, so it is definitely worth your while.
