You won’t believe it but yesterday evening I had a sudden craving for something sweet.

Yeeeeees, you heard me right;-)

Because those of you who know me well, know that I am not a big fan of sweet stuff.

And honestly, I don’t really think that this will change anytime soon. Buuuuuut, try to tempt me with savory foods and you’ll be probably successful. 😉

But I have to admit that this is not always the case.

My delicious plum muffins are the best example and a nice exception because I love plums very much! But they need to be sweet, not too soft and juicy. Perfection!

I was quite lucky this year with the plums that I bought because they were already ripe and just perfect for my muffins.  Mhhhh….divine! And it didn’t take long until we were able to enjoy our first muffins after they baked in the oven, spreading this wonderful scent throughout the house.

I can only say super yummy! Try them out as soon as possible because the plum season is quite short. ;-(

In addition you’ll need a bowl, a stirring machine and a muffin form. I only work with silicone baking forms. You’ll save fat and baking paper. if you don’t have a silicone baking form, simply fill the muffin form with baking paper or special muffin paper.
