Cool Enough to Bake

The weather has been cool enough for baking. That’s unusual in July. I seized the chance and made some masa (corn) blueberry muffins

Ken grew flint and dent corn and I make masa. Each batch I make some fresh tortillas and then freeze some one cup balls for batches of muffins. There are 1 c masa, 1 c kefir, 1 egg, 1 c flour (wheat or rolled buckwheat groats, 3T lard (mine), 1/2 t baking soda, 1 t baking powder, enough sugar so they brown – a tablespoon or two – or three. Bake in heated greased tins for about 15 min at 400 degrees F

Because these cast iron tins are relatively flat I get more than a dozen. Most of these went with a friend who had to travel. A few went to my freezer.
