Streusel-Topped Plum Muffins Recipe

Publisher Photo
Living on a fruit farm, I had plenty of fresh ingredients on hand when I found this muffin recipe. Originally, it called for cherries, but my husband and I agree it's delicious made with our homegrown plums. —Betty Timmreck, Eau Claire, Michigan

MY REVIEW

"I used a mixture of plums and nectarines, and the muffins were excellent. They were devoured minutes after putting a plate of them out for my family."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2013

"I think it would be helpful to add "firm" to the "fresh plums" in the instructions. I purchased plums at a Farmer's Market in my area; the fruit was ripe. I had quite a mess on my hands--juice everywhere when I began cutting the plums. I drained them, even tried to squeeze out more of the juice, as I was afraid that so much would affect the batter. The plums disintegrated when I tried to fold them into the batter. The cake itself was very nice, delicate. I'm undecided whether to make this recipe again; if I do, I may try another fruit."

"We have 3 Italian prune plum trees and these are a fantastic way to use them up. I make them every Fall. Very tender, almost cake-like muffin"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2011

"This is the perfect recipe to use with Santa Rosa Plums. The raw batter with the plums does not taste so good, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out how good the muffins tasted right out of the oven.

The plums were starting to become over-ripe, so instead of chopping them, I put them in the blender. For the topping, I used pecans instead of the walnuts because I like pecans better. Fabulous, simply fabulous."
