Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins Recipe
1½ Cups All Purpose Flour
¾ Cup sugar
2 Teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
Zest 1 Lemon
⅓ Cup vegetable oil
1 Lg. egg
⅓ Cup milk
2 Cups blueberries
½ Cup sugar
½ Cup flour
¼ Cup butter (cold)
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. In your first bowl add your flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and zest from one lemon. Mix.
3. In another take your blueberries and a spoonful of your dry mix and toss.This actually will help your blueberries stay put in the batter and not sink to the bottom.
4. In your last bowl combine the vegetable oil, egg, and milk. Whisk.
5. Combine the flour mixture with the butter mixture all at once and then mix. Don't over mix!
6. Add your blueberries and mix as little as possible.
7. Combine sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Use a pastry blender to mix- or if you’re like me just use your hand. Then sprinkle over the muffin batter.
8. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack or like me enjoy immediately.
Coronation Grape Clafouti
Recipe courtesy of Chef Heidi Fink
1 Tb butter
3 cups seedless coronation grapes (or concord grapes)
3 large eggs
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1- 1/2 cups light cream (10%)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Make sure your oven rack is in the middle-lower position. Place a baking sheet on the rack. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch glass pie plate and set aside.
2. Gently pull the grapes off their stems and place them in a large measuring cup. Once you have three cups, cover the grapes with cold water and swish around to gently clean the grapes. Drain off the water. Pour the grapes into the prepared pie pan.
3. In a blender, combine the eggs (without their shells, obviously :)), the flour, sugar, salt, vanilla and cream. Blend until smooth. Alternatively, you can whisk the eggs, sugar and flour until smooth, then add the salt, vanilla and cream and whisk until smooth.
4. Pour the batter over the grapes in the pie plate. Place the filled pie plate in the oven on the preheated baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, rotating the pan about half-way through baking. Clafouti is done when it is puffed and golden around the egdes and the centre only jiggles very slightly. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
5. Clafoutis can be served warm or at room temperature.
The Best Vegan Apple Crisp
Recipe courtesy of the Minimalist Baker
8 medium-large apples (4 tart (like granny smith), 4 sweet (like honey crisp) | organic when possible)
1 lemon, juiced (~ 2 Tbsp | 30 ml)
2/3 cup (128 g) coconut sugar (or sub organic cane sugar)
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 Tbsp (21 g) arrowroot starch or cornstarch (for thickening)
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh apple juice (or water)
optional∫†3/4 tsp fresh grated ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup (90 g) rolled oats
1/2 cup (55 g) almond meal
1/2 cup (68 g) unbleached all purpose flour*
1/2 cup (96 g) coconut sugar (or sub organic cane sugar)
1/2 cup (110 g) muscovado sugar (or sub organic brown sugar)
1/2 cup (50 g) pecans, roughly chopped
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (120 ml) melted coconut oil or olive oil (or mix the two 1/2, 1/2)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Peel apples, quarter, remove cores, and use a paring knife to thinly slice lengthwise (see photo).
3. Add to a large mixing bowl and top with remaining filling ingredients. Toss to combine. Add to a 9x13 (or similar size) baking dish.
4. Rinse and wipe out your mixing bowl and add all topping ingredients. Stir to combine, then use fingers to break down any clumps of muscovado sugar. Pour over apples in an even layer.
5. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour (uncovered), or until the filling is bubbly, the apples are very fork tender (especially in the center of the dish), and the topping is deep golden brown.
6. Let rest at least 30 minutes before serving. This is delicious with coconut whipped cream or vanilla bean coconut ice cream.
7. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator up to 3 days, or in the freezer up to 1 month. Reheat in the microwave, or in a 350 degree F oven until warmed through.
