“One of my all-time favorite muffins is the classic blueberry muffin. But then who says you can’t improve on it. So on a whim and a few adjustments to the recipe, I added ube jam to the mix which I thought would be an excellent contrast to the tartness of the blueberries. And sure enough, it is a winning combination.”
