Plum Muffins

16 muffins
40 min

My mum always makes a recipe whenever I am coming over. Eating it elsewhere makes me feel at home.

I start by washing the plums. Then, I pit it and slice it into small pieces, like so.

In a large bowl, I mix the dry ingredients: flour, oats, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.

I mix all the wet ingredients and pour them over the dry ones.

The mixture is still somewhat dry before adding the plums. Once added, the mixture becomes sticky. This time it was too hard to mix, and I had to add ¼ cup of milk (perhaps the reason is that it was too hot and dry that day).


Then, I pour it into muffin cups.

(Optional – sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. For 5 tbl spoons sugar I add 1 tbl spoon of cinnamon and shake well)


Bake for 15-20 minutes till the muffins are golden brown and the smell of cinnamon spreads all over the house…   Yummy!

  • Absolutely going to try this recipe! Plums are another of my summer fruit favorites. My European grandmother used to make a plum recipe that was a cross between am American cobbler and fruit crisp and I would gobble it up. Italian prune plums are almost here for the very short season that I can get them, those will work in this recipe as well. Excited to try! Thanks for sharing! ❤
