  • Summary

    If you buy Mom's Big Book of Baking (and you really should), the basics of this recipe can be found under the title Best Blueberry Muffins. My recipe below swaps out her suggested fruit for blackberries, and I used almond extract instead of vanilla. Not able to stop myself there, I also added a topping and glaze. Eagle-eyed readers may notice in my photos there are slivered almonds inside the cake; I spontaneously decided to throw them into the batter as well. Next time, I think I would skip this step and make the recipe just as seen below.

    Ingredients

    • Cake:
    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 2 C. unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • ½ tsp. baking soda
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • ½ C. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    • ? C. sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1½ tsp. pure almond extract
    • 2 tsp. lemon zest (I doubled her suggested 1 tsp.)
    • 1 C. low-fat plain yogurt
    • about 2 C. fresh or frozen blackberries
    • Topping:
    • 1 C. blanched almonds, slivers or slices
    • 1 Tbs. butter, melted
    • ½ C. brown sugar
    • 1 tsp. almond extract
    • 1 Tbs. flour
    • pinch salt
    • Glaze:
    • 1 C. confectioner's sugar
    • 2 Tbs. milk
    • 1-2 scant drops vanilla or almond extract
