I tend to use the frozen fruit in muffins, smoothies and pancakes. Sometimes I will defrost part of a bag of fruit and add some of this fruit to a bowl of yogurt. The biggest challenge I sometimes have is remembering all of the fruit that I have stashed away in the freezer as I don't always use up the frozen supply before the new berry season has started.
For the following recipe I used a photo of the batter to just give you a different view of the recipe. Of course I used saskatoons.
1 cup milk or buttermilk
1 egg beaten
¼ cup canola
¼ cup applesauce
1 cup wheat bran
1 ½ cups flour (whole or white or combination)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 cup blueberries or saskatoons
In a bowl, combine the milk, egg, oil and applesauce.
In a second bowl, combine the wheat bran, flour, sugar, baking powder and soda. Add the wet mixture and berries to this second bowl. Mix until combined.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. Depending on the size of your muffin tins, the recipe makes 12 to 18 muffins.
Instead of the applesauce you can use molasses.
To create a lemon flavour, you can add 1 ½ tsp of grated lemon rind and 1 tbsp of lemon juice.
