  • 2 large plums, coarsely chopped (2 cups)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, until light golden brown. Remove from heat; stir in plums and cardamom. Cool completely.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour, the granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk, vanilla and eggs just until moistened. Gently stir in plum mixture. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix brown sugar, walnuts and 1/4 cup butter. Stir in 1/3 cup flour with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over batter.
  • 5
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Serve warm or cool.

  • Ingredient Tip: Try Santa Rosa plums in these muffins. These tangy, full-flavoured red-skinned plums are widely available in season at farmers’ markets. Leave firm plums at room temperature to fully ripen.
