Calgary-Heartland Cafe Raspberry Vanilla Muffins

FYI - there is a really great muhammara recipe on epicurious (from Gourmet magazine) that I think is even better than Aida's. Give it a try and see what you think!

Calgary-Heartland Cafe Raspberry Vanilla Muffins

I just posted a response and accidentally started a new link - so see link titled Raspberry Yogurt Muffins - it might explain why the recipe didn't turn out as expected - the version of the recipe I have (published 1997) isn't quite the same. I've made them often and they were quite good (although I can't resist adding grated lemon peel).

Raspberry Yogurt Muffins from Heartland Cafe

I have a copy of an old cookbook called Calgary Cooks (1997) - I think it was published as a fundraiser. It includes recipes from restos and cafes in Calgary, Banff and Lake Louise. It also includes the recipe for raspberry muffins from the Heartland Cafe, which is slightly different from the one posted here from the Heartland Cafe cookbook.
Here are the differences: 1 cup brown sugar instead of 2/3 (although I'd go with 2/3), all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour (which would make quite a difference in taste), and it says the frozen raspberries should be thawed and drained. It just says vegetable oil without specifying type - I would stick to canola or grapeseed rather than olive which has a more pronounced taste.

wine on sale

Some great deals on wine right now at the Manitoba Liquor Stores. Not all stores have the same selection, but it's a great time to stock up.

What can I do with Kahlua, besides give it away?

What a brilliant idea! You've made my (cooking) day.

Add a few Tbsp. to brownies, or to whipped cream that's served with anything chocolatey. With sauteed bananas over ice cream?
