If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember that I used to join in with the monthly Secret Recipe Club. A large group of bloggers used to be paired up with another food blogger and make & share one of their recipes. I completely loved being part of this group as it exposed me to all types of food, new blogs and different cuisines. Sadly the SRC is no more but we have come together as a special anniversary episode for one last time.
I have been paired up with Sarah from Things for Dinner (Otherwise known as Oreos and Cool Whip). Sarah hails from Canada and her blog is jam packed full of different recipes. I honestly spent ages mooching through before I finally decided on which recipe to make. I eventually decided on Coffee Cake Muffins. The name is quite deceiving though as not a bit of coffee appears in these muffins! They are most definitely Fruity Muffins but the best bit by far is the Streusel Topping.
Sarah describes how she amended the recipe to make Fruity Muffins by using dried fruit. Being me, I changed it yet again and used frozen fruit – in particular Frozen Pitted Cherries. I know it is always a gamble, using frozen fruit as it can explode on cooking and go everywhere. Happily, these muffins were a great success. I could have probably got away with using even more fruit and may try raspberries aswell next time.
I’ve really enjoyed being back with the Secret Recipe Club – Still hoping that these can become a more regular event. To find out what the other bloggers got up to for the reunion visit the widget below.
