Good morning! Sunday mornings are muffins mornings when the family is here. Everyone is getting up at different times and in different stages of getting read for the day. So we just leave out a good supply of muffins and some eggs to scramble and everyone manages to breakfast. I love these sweet simple muffins. They taste like a sunny Sunday morning…
APRICOT ALMOND MUFFINS
2/3 cup dried apricots, chopped to small bits
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 tab. amaretto (or almond extract)*
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup sliced almonds
Soak the apricot bits in a bowl of hot water for about 10 minutes to plump them up. Then drain off the water.
Next mix together the apricots, egg, milk, oil and amaretto. And stir in the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Top them off with the almonds
Pop them into the oven at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes while you pull out the eggs and orange juice, put on the coffee. Breakfast!
