TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie

Blueberry Muffins and Sweet Berry Fougasse

I decided to make both for this Tuesday with Dorie posting week.

The blueberry muffins were good, but not my favorite.  They were a bit too cakelike and sweet for me.  I prefer my muffins as muffins.  Also, I had a bit of trouble with the oven temperature.  I have an oven thermometer, so my oven was at the correct temperature, but the tops were browning faster than the centers were baking.  I think a slightly lower oven temperature may have worked better for me.  I did like the amount of blueberries in the muffins.

For the Sweet Berry Fougasse, I chose an Autumnal take.  I used grapes.  I saw David Rocco make a dessert type pizza with grapes and have wanted to try it, so this seemed like an interesting choice now that local grapes are in season.  While we have yet to eat it, it went together very well and smells divine.  I’ll follow up once we’ve actually tasted it.

To get the recipe check out the book Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.

    I liked the muffins too, because they are cake like. Don’t really think they are a muffin.
    Your fougasse looks amazing with the grapes…so pretty.

    The grape fougasse sounds good! I think grapes get the short-end of the stick when it comes to desserts/baked goods. I really liked the muffins. My muffins started to brown early so I did drop the temperature down for the last 15 minutes or so. I think it they would do better at baking the whole time at 375°F.
