Another Keeper

Page 79 features the lovely Brownie Gems. They're moist by themselves, but I prefer them with a warm and rich ganache poured over the top. The recipe suggested their sauce/icing which I haven't tried.

I made these in a regular-size muffin tin, not mini muffin-size. Sadly, I don't have a mini tin, but the regular size worked well!

Raspberry Change

The Blueberry Muffins (pg. 33) became raspberry muffins because I had bought them fresh and they needed to be yummy! I mashed half of the raspberries (in my hands, I'll admit!) before adding them to the batter along with the other half of whole raspberries.

These muffins are a Spelt flour base (again, not gluten-free but easier for some to digest!). The batter was tasty, the muffins were even better! Warm, light, cakey-fluffy, sweet and tart (thanks again to the fresh raspberries).

The baking time was exactly what the book suggested! The muffin tops didn't rise, but they baked evenly.
