- 250 grams cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans
- 2 cups glace mix
- In a large bowl, use a handheld mixer to cream together the cream cheese, butter, and sugar.
- Add the eggs one at a time and blend into the mixture.
- Add the vanilla and incorporate well.
- Add 2 cups of the flour and baking powder, and continuing to use the mixer, blend well into the butter and cream cheese mixture.
- In a small bowl, toss the glace mix and the nuts with 1/4 cup of flour. Be sure to toss well to coat every piece in the bowl.
- Add the flour-covered nuts and fruit to the batter and fold in with a spatula.
- Grease and flour a bundt cake pan and pour in the batter.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes.
- Allow cake to cool for at least 15 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
- Cool completely; dust with confectioner’s sugar and enjoy!
- 5 tablespoons (70 grams) unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon plus one pinch kosher salt
- Slightly heaped 1/2 cup (105 grams) granulated sugar
- 1 2/3 cups (220 grams) all-purpose flour, divided
- Half a medium lemon
- 1 large egg
- 2/3 cup (150 grams) plain unsweetened yogurt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 8 ounces (225 grams) fresh or (ideally) frozen raspberries (1 2/3 to 1 3/4 cups; see Note)
- Heat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Prepare pan: Very lightly coat the top surface of your muffin tin with nonstick spray or swipe it with butter. This ensures muffin spillover releases easily. Line 6 cups with muffin liners. If you’re using a 12-cup pan, space them out and pour about 1 tablespoon of water in each empty cup, which will keep the empty pockets from burning.
- Make streusel: In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar, pinch of salt, and 1 cup (130 grams) of the flour until it forms a clumpy mixture. Scoop out 1/4 cup (about 45 grams) and set it aside in a small bowl; this will be your streusel topping.
- Make muffin batter: Finely grate the zest of your lemon half into the large bowl with the remaining streusel in it, then juice the lemon half over it too. Add yogurt and egg and whisk to combine as smoothly as you can, but it’s okay if the batter doesn’t fully even out. Sprinkle the surface of the batter with baking powder, baking soda, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and whisk to thoroughly combine, going several times more around the bowl than seems necessary. Add remaining 2/3 cup (90 grams) of flour and all of the berries and stir gently; just until the flour disappears.
- Divide batter between six prepared muffin cups; go ahead and heap it as much as is needed. Divide reserved streusel between muffin tops and use your fingers to push any that lands on the muffin tin back to a nearby muffin.
- Bake muffins: For 25 to 30 minutes, and until a toothpick inserted from the top to the center of the muffin comes out batter-free. Let cool completely in the pan.
- Do ahead: These muffins keep phenomenally. I keep them either in their baking pan or on a plate uncovered (so they don’t get mushy on top) and they’ve been excellent even on day 3 and not bad at all on day 4.
- Notes:Raspberries by cup: Just a heads up that while technically every ingredient is more accurate when measured by weight, raspberries are particularly so. They’re hollow. When frozen, they take up more space in a cup per ounce. When defrosted or very ripe and fresh, they collapse and take up less space per ounce in a cup. For frozen raspberries, use the higher cup suggestion (1 3/4 cups); for very ripe fresh, use the lower amount (1 1/2 cups).Double this: Yes, you can absolutely double this recipe to make 12 muffins; no changes needed. When you double the sugar, simply measure 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon.
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 2 cups wild Maine blueberries
Preheat oven to 375° and butter a 9×9-inch baking pan. In a large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, scraping the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as necessary. Add the egg and combine.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk, until well combined. Add the blueberries and fold a few times with a rubber spatula until just combined. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
For the topping:
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon table salt
- 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add the butter and combine until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the top of the batter.
Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
1 ( 29 oz.) can sliced peaches, drained well
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. table salt
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed and cold
1 cup heavy cream
cinnamon and sugar (for sprinkling on top)
Preheat oven to 375F degrees
Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Drain your can of peaches.
Pour drained peaches into bottom of baking dish (spreading them out evenly).
Sprinkle peaches with a little cinnamon or cinnamon sugar mixture.
For the topping, in a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Then add in the cubed butter.
Begin to “cut” it into the flour mixture.
You can use a pastry cutter. Or better yet, use your fingers. Just work it in with the flour until it becomes small pebbles and has been worked in with the flour/sugar mixture.
Then pour in heavy cream.
Combine until all the flour mixture has become moist. It will be very thick.
Using a spoon, begin plopping the topping all over the peaches. Just put it on in clumps. Doing your best to cover the peaches. Don’t worry about smoothing it out.
Sprinkle the top with sugar or a cinnamon/sugar mixture. (the cinnamon will make the topping appear darker as it cooks.)
Bake for about 40 minutes.
Top will be golden brown, and you can stick a toothpick in the top to make sure the topping has completely baked through (toothpick should come out clean).
I made this with fresh peaches and frozen blueberries. It took about 47 min in the oven.
To make this with fresh peaches, you’ll need about 6 peaches, sliced.
Combine sliced peaches with 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour since fresh peaches will produce a lot of juice. Then continue with above steps.
To make cinnamon sugar, combine 2 tbsp. granulated sugar with 1 tsp. ground cinnamon.
3 cups fresh blueberries
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- In an 8 inch square baking dish, mix blueberries, 3 tablespoons sugar, and orange juice. Set aside. In a small bowl, thoroughly mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring just until ingredients are combined. Drop batter by rounded tablespoons over blueberry mixture. Try to cover as much of filling as possible.
- Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbling.
- 8 fresh peaches (peeled, pitted, and sliced into chunks)
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Bake the cobbler for about 30 minutes, or until the topping is golden.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Peel the peaches with a knife or peeler, or drop the peaches one-by-one in boiling water for about a minute. Then, take each one out and put it into a bowl of ice water for about a minute. The skins should slide off pretty easily if the peaches are ripe.
- In a large bowl, combine the first list of ingredients (peaches, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, cornstarch). Toss everything together so the peaches are coated evenly, then put the mixture into a greased two-quart (8×8) baking dish and bake in the oven for ten minutes.
- In another large bowl, combine some of the ingredients from the second list– flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use your fingertips to blend the butter into the mixture, or use a pastry blender ñ until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Then, stir in the water until just combined.
- Take the peaches out of the oven and drop spoonfuls of the topping over them. Sprinkle the entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon.
- Bake the cobbler for about 30 minutes, or until the topping is golden. Enjoy!
- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream the sugar and butter in a bowl. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and eggs and beat well.
- Spoon the batter into a springform pan of 8, 9 or 10 inches. Place the plum halves skin side up on top of the batter. Sprinkle lightly with sugar and lemon juice, depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, depending on how much you like cinnamon.
- Bake 1 hour, approximately. Remove and cool; refrigerate or freeze if desired. Or cool to lukewarm and serve plain or with whipped cream. (To serve a torte that was frozen, defrost and reheat it briefly at 300 degrees.)
