Blueberry (Goat Cheese) Muffins

Standard

This weekend we finally got some great spring weather! It was also the Oriole’s home opening weekend, so a big group of friends went to the day game on Sunday. With a 1:35pm game, we had a pot-luck brunch before heading to Camden Yards. My contribution to brunch were these delicious Blueberry Muffins, with a secret ingredient…goat cheese!

The original recipe is from Coconut & Lime, but I’ve made a few changes. Mainly, I add some milk to thin the batter out a little and I use applesauce instead of blueberry puree.

The goat cheese in these muffins is subtle, but it really adds a unique flavor. My love for these muffins was confirmed by our house full of guests on Sunday…success!

I usually use the little log of goat cheese, but goat cheese crumbles were on sale so I bought that instead. I can confirm that either the log or the crumbles work great for this recipe!

I only have 1 muffin tin, and the batter makes more muffins than my tin will hold. So, I simply put the last 3 muffins in the oven as a second batch. If you have 2 muffins tins or a tin that holds more than 12 muffins (does that exhist?), you can cook them all in one batch. Be sure to let these cool a bit before serving.
