Berry Explosion Oatmeal Muffins

Berry Explosion Oatmeal Muffins

I love oats. Eating them takes me back instantly to my childhood. Sitting around my cousins table, surrounded by people I have so many fantastic memories with.

We would eat it with fresh cream that came from the cows milked earlier that morning. Truly a flavour of my childhood, simple yet transformative. It is amazing how one taste can transport you back to a moment in time as if were yesterday! And a flavour memory I refer back to often.

Looking to do some baking this morning I had oats on my mind. I have an amazing maple bread recipe that I love and have to share soon, but with a bunch of fresh berries in the fridge I thought muffins would be perfect.

Berry Explosion Muffins from Nutmeg Disrupted

It is a great muffin with fantastic texture from the oats. They are not sweet and have an amazing amount of tart juicy raspberries. With the perfect hint of nutmeg that rounds out the flavour.

Perfection.

Strawberry Vodka! Now that sounds spectacular!

This little gem was making its way around Twitter about 2 weeks ago.

I first spotted it on David Lebovitz’s blog ~ living the sweet life in Paris.

I knew immediately I had to try it.

I followed the same direction as David, letting mine sit for 5 days.

You will need a 2 pound clamshell of berries, 2 large jars and one 750 ml bottle of vodka.

I admit I grabbed the Absolut Vodka strictly for the nice clean bottle.

Now that I have tasted the finished product I do not think the type of vodka will affect the final flavor.

 

.

The strawberries are very pale so it is time to strain the fruit from the alcohol.

I used coffee filters to get a nice clean finished vodka.

 

Straight is nice on ice though I prefer it mixed with a splash of Club Soda.

The touch of sweetness from say 7 Up would be a nice addition.

The strawberry flavor is very prominent and it has a nice smooth finish.
