    Random Rachel's Note:

    Simple muffins from scratch with a surprise filling. They are not too sweet. The original recipe also suggests substituting another fruit, or steamed carrots, for the plum filling. I tried it with blueberries, most of them stayed in the middle but they rose to the top on a few of the muffins. You could also use jam. For ZWT7, from

      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Grease muffin pan.
    3. 3
      Wash and dry the plums. Cut them in half and remove the pits.
    4. 4
      Mix the flour, oil, sugar and baking powder. (The muffins aren't too sweet, so add some extra sugar if you prefer a more dessert like muffin.).

    6. 6
      Add 2 tbsp of batter to each muffin cup. Place plum half (or other fruit) in the center of each muffin. Divide remaining batter evenly among muffins to cover the fruit.
    7. 7
      Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. (The fruit will cling to the toothpick, but muffin dough should not.).

      Just as you say, these are a not-too-sweet muffin with a surprise in the center, which somehow was wildly amusing to my kiddos LOL. All of my fruit stayed in the center of the muffin, which made them look pretty cool. I used white wheat flour instead of AP and they still turned out tender and yummy. Thanks for posting! Made for a fellow Gourmet Goddess for ZWT 9.

      I did these with jam as was one of the suggestions and they tasted like a jam doughnut. They looked a little ordinary but when you bit in to one it was a delicious surprise. Made for ZWT 7
