TWD Great Grains Muffins















These muffins were rich, very buttery, but not too sweet. Instead of dried fruit, I used the cranberries that I'd used for my try at Martha Stewart's cranberry vodka minus the orange. I was a little worried that my cooled butter solidified in little bits after adding the buttermilk, refrigerated maple syrup and eggs, but it all evened out when added to the dry ingredients.

I liked the grains, and they had a nice and crispy crust. Next time I think I'd leave out the cornmeal (like the Lenox biscotti) since it seemed to make them a little gritty. The kids liked them quite a bit, and they'd be nice as part of a brunch.

Thanks to Christine of Happy Tummy for this week's pick!

My kids wouldn't eat these, so the fact that yours did makes me jealous. They look great.

Ah yes, the Lenox biscotti...those were my first TWD disappointment. Your muffins look fantastic, and a good way to use all the cornmeal I prefer not to have in biscotti! I added chocolate chips to mine and they were great.
