This blueberry muffin recipe, from "Martha's Entertaining," features two options for topping: You could always try both, but if you plan on making the crumb topping, prepare that first. Alternatively, sprinkle granulated sugar and freshly grated mace, an aromatic spice made from the outer webbed shell of a nutmeg, over the batter just before baking.
Combine blueberries with nutty cornmeal, then add a sunny burst of orange for a wholesome treat that's perfect for breakfast or as a snack. Tangy, creamy low-fat yogurt provides moisture and helps leaven and tenderize baked goods.
Toss the blueberries in flour before adding them to the batter; this will allow them to suspend evenly through the muffins instead of sinking to the bottom. Fold the berries gently into the batter to avoid turning it blue.
