I chopped up two cups of fresh berries then folded them into a flour, sugar, buttermilk, vanilla and egg mixture.
I filled the muffin cups half-way, put in a dollop of lemon curd then filled the cups to the top. For the crumble mixture I used Splenda brown sugar, cinnamon, flour and substituted the butter with more lemon curd. After sprinkling a bunch on each one, I baked them at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. These muffins baked up with HUGE tops (the best part).
So good! The berries were perfectly sweet in the mix and the lemon made for a perfect bit of tangy-ness.
