So, In keeping with my goal of trying at least one new recipe a month, a friend of mine gave me this really easy recipe... using GRAPESEED OIL!... I was intrigued.. I had never even heard of grapeseed oil. It's a little more expensive.. well.. ok.. ALOT more expensive, than regular cooking oil, but you use less..about half as much as most other cooking oils.. it's ALOT healthier, and also has a nice mild nutty flavor.... ( but I didn't taste the nuttiness.. :)) It also has a high smoke point which means almost no smoking , splattering etc..or burnt taste if you use it for frying..
So my friend gave me her homemade, from scratch recipe for Blueberry muffins that uses this oil..
1 1/2 cup flour
2/3-3/4 cup sugar (whichever is preferred)
2 teas. baking powder
1/3 cup grape seed oil
1/3 cup milk
1 cup berries. ( I used frozen blueberry's, but you can try whatever you like..)
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder
In a measuring cup add:
oil, egg- fill to make one cup with milk and then mix
Then add to flour mixture, then add berry's
Fill a six cup cupcake tin- to TOP of tin
Bake at 400 deg. for 20-25 min.
Makes 6 large muffins
grape seed oil can be use for regular cooking too.. not just baking!
