Blueberry Maple Topped Muffins

Blueberry Maple Topped Muffins

I was inspired by Suzanne Perazzini’s recipe for BLUEBERRY LEMON MUFFINS. Her recipe calls for sour cream and I have yet to find lactose-free sour cream in my area so I knew I would need to switch things up.  I used a combination of lactose-free yogurt and milk, plus a little vinegar (on reflection I should have taken the time to juice a lemon —  something I will do next time.)  I also decided to add a maple sugar topping as the muffin itself is not overly sweet.  For me the topping really made these muffins.

Blueberry Maple Topped Muffins

  • 2 cups of my 10 Blend GF Flour, or flour of your choice
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum (omit if contained in your flour)
  • 1/2 cup “Zesty” Sugar (or white sugar & optional citrus zest)
  • 6 oz. Lactose Free Low Fat Plain Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Fat Free Lactaid Milk
  • 1 TBsp  Vinegar, or Lemon Juice – preferred
  • 4 TBsps Canola Oil
  •  1 large Organic Egg
  • 1 + 1/2 cups Fresh Blueberries (1 cup could do)
  • 3 TBsps Maple Sugar (you could use white or brown sugar)
  •  a pinch of  Salt
  •  1/8 tsp Ground Cardamom
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Measure 2 cups flour into a large bowl.  Remove about 1/4 cup of flour to add to your blueberries.
  3. Add xanthan gum &  baking powder to the remaining flour.  Whisk to combine.  Then add sugar and whisk again thoroughly.
  4.  In a smaller bowl, combine your yogurt, milk, vinegar or lemon juice.  Then add your oil and egg.  Whisk until smooth.
  5.  Make a well in your dry ingredients.  Pour wet ingredients into the dry and fold until nearly mixed.
  6. Add the blueberries and continue folding until just combined.
  7. Scoop the batter into paper lined muffin tins, filling right to the top.
  8. In a small dish, mix maple sugar, salt, and cardamom for topping.
  9. Sprinkle topping over the batter filled muffin cups, and pat gently.
  10. Bake for 12 minutes.

This is the most like “normal” GF baked item I have produced to date.  Will certainly make again with lemon juice.
