Gluten Free Blackberry Upside Down Muffins


Are you a recipe repeater or a one-time recipe maker? 

For the most part, I’m a one-time recipe maker. I get bored pretty easily and the thought of making something over and over, when there are so many other creations to try, just seems kind of dull.  Ironically though, these muffins, along with a couple of others in my collection , have been made more than once; pre-Celiac days.  I just luv ’em.

Today was the day to tackle the recipe and make it gluten free.

Sometimes baking doesn’t go as planned and I am left to improvise.  Today was one of those days.

Instead of the blackberries suspending their way throughout the muffins, they sunk to the bottom.  Oh well.

Upside down muffins were born.

Turning them upside down made them look much prettier and more photogenic(yes, I am giving compliments to my muffins. It gives them self confidence, which in turn makes me want to eat more—probably not a good thing).  🙂

The consistancy still needs some tweaking but they sure tasted good; especially the top 1/3, with all of those fresh berries. MMmmmm.

  1. Wow! All your bakegoods look great esp. the muffins! I tend to be a recipe repeater. I’m always looking for new recipes, but I have a handful of favorites that I keep making. I may make a slight change to some of my fav recipes though to keep from getting bored 🙂
