Wholesome Buckwheat Muffin With Black Grapes

It's nearly impossible for me to buy fresh berries here, I mean my living area. What I can find at the local fruit stall or market place are mostly local fruits and some common imported fruits. I have been eyeing on these black grapes long long time ago and totally attracted to the size. Very tiny just like blueberries! And was wondering if I can use them in my baking too. You know, if it's still a good baking option! :o)

And here's what happened.

Ingredients :
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour/ATTA flour
1/4 cup oats
3 tspn baking powder
1 tspn all spice
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tspn salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup thick cream
1 cup milk
1/4 cup corn oil
1 cup black grapes, rinsed

Method :
(1) combine all ingredients and mix well, lastly stir in grapes.
(2) spoon batter evenly into 12 muffin tins, bake at preheated oven 180'C for 20-25mins.

Don't you love how easy it is to make muffins! Even a four years old toddler can make their own bakes.

I am so so happy with the result. This is also my first attempt baking something with buckwheat flour. As I said earlier buckwheat is not wheat flour. Buckwheat is actually fruit seeds and it's 100% gluten-free. Meaning, it's good for your tummy. How could you say "NO!" to such irresistible healthy looking muffins. I can wallop at least a few. Now, I'm being bad again! Probably, should be grounded at least for a week. haha...

I love all your unique creations! I've never worked with buckwheat flour, but it's going on my "list." And I love that you used grapes. I don't think I've ever seen muffins with grapes.

Claudia said...

I don't think I could have baked a muffin at 4 years. That said - I cannot begin to equal what you do with your baking magic. Loving the use of buckwheat - something new to try - and yes, I could probably polish off whatever you had left (but I bet there were long gone).

divya said...

Mary said...

I love the ingredients you've used in these muffins. They really sound delicious. I've done very little baking with buckwheat flour and your recipe intrigues me. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Oh wow, buckwheat muffins! I've only used buckwheat for waffles but not in cakes, very unique Kristy. How is the taste like? Perhaps I should give this a try to use up my buckwheat flour, thanks!

I make pancakes with buckwheat flour, Kristy, but never have used it in a muffin. These looks really good. Nice substitute with those tiny grapes!

Barbara Bakes said...

I've never seen these tiny grapes. What a fun idea to use them in a healthy muffin.

Bridgett ~ La Bella Cook said...

What awesome little muffins! I never would have thought to use grapes but I bet they taste wonderful in these.

My Little Space said...

Andrea : Haha... but remember use seedless grapes!

Sweetylicious : Ya, I was quite surprise that the grapes actually turned out looking just ike blueberry and even juicier. Unlike blueberry, the fruit stayed put in shape and as well as taste.

Velva : I don't have any toddler here. But some blogger's toddlers did bake very well even only 3-4 years old. Mine are both teenagers.

Ana : Thank you very much.

Simona : Do they have smell? I didn't smell the difference at all. Maybe I'm baking with whole wheat flour.

Cooking Gallery : Thanks! Hope you'll like it too.

Jay : Thank you so much.

Claudia : Ha... So sweet of you to say that. I am truly honoured. OK Not a problem, just wait me at the other side of your printer! ha...

Divya : Thank you!

Mary : Thank you. You have a great day too.

Ann : Ha... then looking forward for more from you.

SShaziela : HI there, welcome to my humble little space. Glad you like it too. Hope to hear from you more often.

Jen : :o) Thanks!

Penny : It's quite excited to try something new!

Bee : It's the combination between whole wheat & buckwheat and it taste more to healthy wheaty flavour. Plus the juicy grapes, taste like having a some kind of sauce in between.

Blue wale : Not a problem! Just wait me at the other side of your printer. lol! ha...

Barbara : Thank you! It's a good trial.

Barbara Bakes : These are seedless black grapes. It more pricey than other grapes.

Lena : Yes, it is!

Martha : Ha... you bet!

Amy : Hope you will like it too!

Rebecca : I'm not sure if they're califonia grapes or not! No label on the packaging.

Emily : Thank you so much.

Beidgett : Thank you. Well then, you should start using them. They are juicier and tastier after baking. Better than any berries.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and spending your valueable time here with me today. I am really appreciate it. Hope you're all going to have a great weekend.
Enjoy & have fun!

Blessings, Kristy

I have been wanting to try using buckwheat flour. How does it behave? Pretty much like wheat flour? These look like they turned out great. Are the tiny black grapes very sweet? I never think about baking with fruit. :D

Alice Law said...

Wow, you used whole wheat flour, very nutritious recipe, thanks for sharing!^-^

Victor said...

I love using buckwheat flour. I never used black grapes, an option to consider.

My Little Space said...

Lyndz : My site here also running very slow lately. I only used a quarter cup buckwheat flour in this recipe. Can't taste much! Buckwheat has no gluten, so flour balancing is very important. Otherwise, it won't rise at all. The grapes is not sour but very juicy sweet.

Alice : I love baking with whole wheat flour too!

Victor : Those seedless black grapes are really tasty and juicy too.

Thanks all for visiting. Hope you all will have a fabulous weekend.

Ceers, Kristy

Janetan said...

dear kristy,
it is hard to get buckwheat flour around here..what can i substitute it??

My Little Space said...

Cheah : Thank you. YOu're always so nice to me.

Pete : Thanks!

Amy : You're welcome. Hope you will like it.

Shirley : Yes, I like the popping top too!

Janetan : You can just omit buckwheat flour and use only ATTA flour. Or you may try something new like semolina or sugi flour! :o)

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I am truly appreciate it. Hope to see you all more often.

Have a fabulous day.

Blessings, Kristy
