Sep 03 Fresh Fig, Walnut, and Brown Sugar Muffins

A not too sweet , tender muffin, full of fresh figs, and topped with a crunchy cap of vanilla sugar. Quick and easy to make, and great for breakfast or coffee break.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 4 ounces whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 ounces brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 ounces buttermilk
  • 3 ounces whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 6 to 8 small, fresh figs, rinsed, stemmed and cut into approximately ½-inch chunks (you will need a generous cupful of fruit)
  • Vanilla sugar, for sprinkling over the muffins before baking (I keep "used" vanilla beans in my sugar bowl for an instant supply of vanilla sugar)
