    Default Tim Horton's fruit explosion muffins

    I'm hooked. For any one who is not aware of fruit explosion muffins, they have pie filling in the center of the muffin.

    Anyways, I have a recipe that turns out pretty good using cranberries in the batter and in the center you put a 1/2 tsp of cherry pie filling.

    What I'd like to know is what variation should I use with Blueberry pie filling?

    Has anyone else mastered these yet? I have to say that I need to improve on 2 things:
    1. making it rise a little higher.......any suggestions? is it safe to up the amount of baking soda or baking powder?
    2. making them not so heavy - (I don't want to use a boxed cake mix-too sweet)

    mmm wow, I would think I had died and gone to heaven if I am ever lucky enough to try one.

    As far as the blueberries one, I wonder if you can come up with a creamcheese thing inside... like blueberries N cream. Mmmm. I know that's not a fruit in the middle though.

    My curiosity has got me to thinking about apples and cinnamon, but not sure what to put inside of that one either.

    I would love to see a recipe and go from there. Ok, I am hungry now.
    So much to do, so few people to do it for me.

    Here's the recipe ladies! Talk about something different from the ordinary muffin, I'm going to make the blueberry one today, but I will use the cranberries in the batter because it will be too much of one taste having blueberries in the batter & in the filling.
    Let me know your results & modifications.


    Cranberry Explosion Muffins

    2 cups flour
    1 cup sugar
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 1/2 cups crannberries, fresh
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup oil
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    optional: grated lemon rind and cherry pie fill

    Streusel Topping:
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup flour
    1/4 cup chopped nuts
    2 Tbsp. marg., cold
    optional: cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 400-degrees.
    In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut cranberries in half and toss gently with dry ingredients.
    In a small bowl combine eggs, sour cream, sugar, oil and vanilla. Mix well. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fill muffin liners halfways full with batter. At this time, put a half teaspoon of cherry pie fill in the middle - top with enough batter to seal in filling.
    Bake for 15-20 mins. or until done.

    I love Tim Hortons. My car just goes in that direction. Their coffee is the best. Fruit explosion is my favorite. How about trying almond flavoring with the blueberries? We have a store here that makes almond, poppy seed mufins that are delicious. i live the goodies.

    The filling of the fruit explosion muffins is not put in until they have finished baking. Its squirted in through the muffin top. Same as the centres of the donuts.

    for a cream cheese filling try this:
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    I use this in a pumpkin pie muffin.
