Blackberry (drop) muffins made with yogurt

What do you get when you cross a scone and a muffin? A scoffin! Not very original, huh? Hubby tells me my funny bone was removed with my adenoids. Call these whatever you wish, I call them deliciously-irresistible-good-luck-eating-just-one blackberry muffins.

I seem to be hung up on what exactly to name these little treasures. “Blackberry drop muffins” is fitting since there’s no forming involved and they are tender, moist and sweet just like a muffin top. Hence the cross between a scone and muffin.

In between baking and lamenting on what to name my baked goods, I’ve been trying to take to heart the words spoken so meaningfully and eloquently at my niece’s high school graduation. I’m reducing the multitasking, unplugging to live in the moment more and finding sheer pleasure in even the minutest things by not thinking about a gazillion other things – just living in the moment.

And on that happy note I hope you try these randomly named blackberry drop muffins made with yogurt. Let me know if you come up with a clever name. 🙂
