Sour Cherry Muffins / Mafini sa višnjama

We’re still living in a lockdown and I still had plenty of this easy sour cherry jam left of from a bit ago, so I decided to muffinize it. The jam was initially a bit on the runnier side, which made for a super easy muffin assembly. If you are using a thick jam as your filling, I suggest diluting it with a bit of water if needed.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease your muffin tins with a bit of oil or butter, but skip this step if using silicone muffin molds. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, sour cream and milk. Add in melted butter and stir to combine before dumping in sugar, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir until the batter is smooth and no large lumps remain.

Add about two tablespoons of batter to each muffin mold, top with about a heaping teaspoon of sour cherry jam and finish up by adding another tablespoon of batter. Sprinkle the muffins with brown sugar then bake for about 25 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown on top. Allow them to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from their molds and serving.

Još smo uvijek u karanteni, a i imala sam preostalog onog pekmeza od višanja iz ovog ranijeg posta, pa sam ga odlučila mafinizirati. Pekmez mi je već inicijalno bio ispao nešto rjeđi, što je skroz super funkcioniralo za laganu konstrukciju mafina. Ako pak za nadjev koristite neki gušći pekmez, olakšajte si život tako da ga prethodno po potrebi razrijedite sa malo vode.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 mafina / 1,13 kn po mafinu / 13,52 kn za sve)

Za smjesu:

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice kiselog vrhnja (2,00 kn)

½ šalice mlijeka (0,75 kn)

3 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (3,00 kn)

5 žlica običnog bijelog šećera (0,25 kn)

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

¼ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Dodatno:

½ šalice pekmeza od višanja (3,00 kn)

2 žlice smeđeg šećera (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Ako koristite plehnati kalup za mafine, lagano ga namastite sa malo ulja ili maslaca. Za silikonske kalupe ovaj korak preskočite. U zdjeli razmutite jaja sa vanilijom, kiselim vrhnjem i mlijekom. Dodajte rastopljeni maslac, pa promiješajte da se sve sjedini prije nego u smjesu ubacite i šećer, brašno, sol, prašak za pecivo i sodu bikarbonu. Promiješajte dok tijesto ne bude glatko i bez grudica.

Oko dvije žlice smjese stavite u svaku košaricu za mafine, dodajte na to krcatu žličicu pekmeza, pa za kraj po svemu još poraspodijelite po oko žlicu smjese. Mafine posipajte smeđim šećerom te ih pecite oko 25 minuta, dok im vrhovi ne postanu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi. Ostavite mafine da se 10-tak minuta hlade u kalupima, te ih onda izvadite iz kalupa i poslužite.
