A cross between a muffin top and a scone. These baked wonders are delicious toasted or warm and tender straight from the oven. Try this recipe with blue cornmeal for a violet-hued treat. You can tinker with this recipe by using almost any fruit. Obvious choices would be other varieties of berries, but you can also use cherries, apples, pears, peaches, plums. Just be sure to pit or core and peel tough-skinned fruits before cutting into berry-sized chunks to mix with the sugar in Step 2.
