Spiced plum muffins

spiced plum muffins

I make bran muffins most weekends, but occasionally I mix things up with lemon poppyseed or spiced plum muffins.

Plum and ginger always work well together. I love the extra hit the preserved ginger brings, but they are also nice without it.

Dense with fruit, spiced plum muffins have a lovely moist crumb. They keep well for a few days if stored in an air-tight tin.
