This recipe preserves the taste of late summer plums in a surprisingly fantastic combination! The almond extract truly adds to the flavour and these muffins disappear quickly in my house! We've also substituted rhubarb in for the plums... or a blueberry/vanilla extract combination. Thank you so much for sharing!

I had 15lbs of organic plums that I needed to use up in different recipes, so I have this one a try. Delicious muffins. Not a sweet muffin but good flavor.
