What makes a great blueberry muffin? To me, it's all about a fresh-tasting muffin, full of as many berries as the batter can possibly hold. I prefer to use a small amount of butter/oil in quick breads/muffin recipes, replacing most of it with Greek yogurt, which makes muffins lighter and moister and healthier. I also […] Read More

Strawberry banana bread with blueberries

Berry clafoutis

Berry clafoutis

The main reason I wanted to make this baked French dessert was that I liked how it sounded - clafoutis. Doesn't it sound very French and sophisticated and refined?
