SMS: Orange Blueberry Muffins with Pecan Crumble

First things first... Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Now... THIS is a good blueberry muffin! It starts with Melissa Murphy's basic sweet muffin recipe (butter and heavy cream, anyone?) and adds in orange zest, nutmeg, and blueberries.

Now if that isn't good enough, how about take the Pecan Crumble (from the Apple Orchard Crumble which was my SMS pick back in October) and throw that on top of the muffin. Mmmmmm!

I put the crumble on half of the muffins and left the other half plain. I think the muffin was good enough to stand on its own, but I really did enjoy the crumble. But, you are talking to a girl who prefers the crumbs on a crumb cake over the cake itself!

Thanks to Chaya of Sweet & Savory for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

Looks good! Yours look very blueberry-y. Yum!

I like the amount of topping you got on yours. For some reason, I thought I put a lot on, and it amounted to very little.

Looks great!

I hope you had a wonderful day with your family Cristine!

Happy Mother's Day! I loved the crumble topping to. It really made the muffins stand out! Love your pictures, the muffins look great!

Happy Mother's Day! Your muffins look wonderful! I almost skipped the crumble topping because I was short on time so it's good to know the muffins stood on their own without it. I'll keep that in mind for next time :)

Nina said...

Looks great!I really wish that I made the crumble now!

Tessa said...

I am completely with you on preferring the crumble to the cake! Me too!! :-)

Glad you enjoyed the muffins!

Hi Cristine!

I'm so sorry I haven't been by recently to comment- I sort of dropped off the blogosphere for a while due to my declining health, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, including baking with SMS!

Your blueberry muffins came out absolutely lovely! I'm really glad you enjoyed them- and I agree, that crumble topping is truly a keeper :)

I also wanted to complement you on your first ever 6 braid challah (from the previous post). It's so funny, I just baked 2 loaves on Friday (one's waiting in the freezer to be the base of the SMS pumpkin bread pudding) and let me tell you, I've been doing the 6-braid technique for well over a year, and I swear, EVERY time, I brush up by watching that you-tube video! But I would've thought you were an old pro by the looks of that photo- you did a really great job!

Hope to hear from you soon! Have a good rest of your week!
