In a pinch, because I didn’t have buttermilk on hand, I decided to replace with the buttermilk with plain two-percent Greek yogurt. Oh boy! I am so glad I did!
What results is this super moist dense muffin, Not too dense, but just enough to make this delectable baked good hardy and lush.
Ok, I was in a second pinch and didn’t have any vanilla on hand either. I know! I need to go shopping and replenish my pantry. So, I had some almond extract in the cupboard and sliced almonds that were just screaming to be included. Again, I am so glad I did!
I never thought to pair almonds with raspberries, because I’ve only seen almond extract as a stand alone ingredient or paired with cherries.
I’ve been in a “make-everything-myself” kind of place lately. So, I decided to save a few pennies by making my own muffin pan liners. PLUS they add to the rustic vision that I had. I basically took sheets of parchment paper, then measured and cut 6×6 squares. Next, I molded the squares over an object that fits into the muffins tin wells and popped them in.Print
