Muffins! Muffins! Muffins!

Do you know the muffin man? He (actually she) lives in Katamon 

I apologize for being MIA these past couple of Muffin Mondays, but there’s lots going on at The Katamon Kitchen which made little time for typing up recipes. 

One of the exciting things I’ve been busy with is that TKK baked goods are now available for purchase! If you live in Jerusalem or know someone here that would like some tasty baked goods contact thekatamonkitchen@gmail.com for more info and to place an order! There are many different options like cookies, cupcakes, birthday cakes, and of course muffins. 

Speaking of muffins as a gift to all my patient followers I’m sharing not one, not two, but three muffin recipes for this week’s Muffin Monday. 

Now get in the kitchen and bake up a batch of each these so you can enjoy these chilly autumn mornings with an assortment of fresh muffins and an extra large cup of coffee or if you're in Jerusalem just order a batch from yours truly :)

Blueberry Crumble Muffins

1/2 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract 
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp lemon zest 
1 1/2 cups flour 
1/2 tsp salt  
2 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp cinnamon 
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries tossed with 1 Tbs flour. If using frozen do not thaw them.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredient mixture. Mix together until just combined. 

In a small bowl toss the blueberries with 1 Tbs of flour. This will help them not sink to the bottom of the muffins during baking. 

Gently fold the flour coated blueberries into the batter. 

In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients for the topping. Add the butter/oil and mix with your fingers until you have large crumbs. 

Scoop the muffin batter into prepared tins and generously pack the crumb topping on top. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

To make the glaze, mix together ingredients adding milk until you have a drizzle consistency. 

Allow the muffins to cool before drizzling them with the glaze.
