Or “never trust a recipe over experience”.
Last year, the blackberries fell victim to a hungry deer that ate all the flowers. This year, they#re getting ripe and are delicious, so I decided to make muffins.
I googled a basic recipe for cream cheese and blueberry muffins and came up with the following:
- 1/2 cup of oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1 egg
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- 0.25 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
OK, I exchanged the oil for butter and the buttermilk for Greek yoghurt (which was only a quarter cup), yet still it seemed to be a lot of liquid, but well, that#s what the recipe said. The taste was delicious, but they did what muffins do when they are too wet: they crawled all over the baking tray.
Next time, less yoghurt.

They look yummy!
Yummm! I hope you shared, but if you did, that makes you a better person than me. I probably wouldn’t. ;)
Those look delicious! I may have to try it, but with blueberries.
I shared. I’m not a complete bastard.
But right now there#s a bowl with blackberries and raspberries that I’ll eat all by myself.
