i recently went with alex to Winona, Minnesota on a business trip. while he met with the client i worked out of a coffee shop. the Blue Heron Coffee House
was really quaint and was attached to the most adorable book store. the coffee was good but their bakery items were amazing. my favorite was a blackberry peach muffin. i easily could have eaten 10 of those darn things.
these blackberry peach muffins remind me of those at the coffee shop but better. the muffin is moist, thanks to the milk and sour cream. the crumb topping gives the muffin the texture it needs. the lemon zest brightens up the fruit. all in all - this is one excellent muffin. blackberry and peach is definitely my new favorite fruit combination.
one last thing before i get to the recipe - i found a great place to order muffin/cupcake liners. it is called the Cupcake Swirl
. they have hard to find brown liners and these adorable tulip baking cups! the shipping is quick and the product is excellent.
and in case the FTC is reading this - i was not paid or offered anything to mention the Blue Heron Coffee Shop or Cupcake Swirl. i did it because i wanted to!blackberry peach crumb topped muffins
