Lemon Blueberry Muffins with Pecan Crumble (sms)


Chaya of Sweet and Savory hosted this week’s recipe
Orange Blueberry Muffins with Pecan Crumble
from the book, The Sweet Melissa Baking Book found on pages 5 through 7.


In my recipe, I switched out the orange zest for lemon zest in making the muffins.

Off to the oven the muffins go…


My favorite part of these muffins is the crumble! Pecans add a wonderful taste to the crumble.


Thanks Chaya of Sweet and Savory for hosting this week.

You can also see this recipe baked by other bakers in the group Sweet Melissa Sundays (sms).


Peace in baking,

Carmen

That is really a very nice combo, blueberries go perfectly well with lemon, then if you add pecan, hmmm I can just imagine how great it must taste!

Leslie said...

MMMmmm... those are some gorgeous muffins, Carmen! Good call with the zest switch- although the orange was a nice change of pace, you can't go wrong with the classic combo of lemon + blueberries.

Thanks for your advice on the coconut custard pie... I did search a few other recipes on the internet, but there seemed to be some conflicting information about how to determine done-ness. Some recipes suggest baking it all the way through, while others want there to be a little jiggle in the center. But after all that, I wasn't able to make my pie/tarts for Mother's Day because I wasn't feeling well. I did roll out my crust, but because I was still nervous about the baking time, I chickened out, and put it in a 9" pie plate. It's waiting in the freezer (since I have to make bread pudding first!) Which reminds me, thank you SO much for all the tips you left on the P&Q- I'll definitely be using them :) That was very thoughtful of you, but it doesn't surprise me that you'd be so forthcoming with your help- it's definitely in keeping with your character!

Can't wait to talk after Sunday's postings! Are you excited for your host week?... I know I am! Enjoy it! Hope to hear from you again soon.

<3,
Joy
