Plum muffin, soft and good because simple. These muffins with fresh plums are flavored with lemon and plum pieces inside have a sweet tooth.

I always delight in seeing your creations! You are a brilliant chef and I wish I could travel to Sicily to try them in person. It makes me smile knowing that the translation from Italian to English isn’t always correct. The recipe translation said to try pieces of fish- I’m pretty sure you meant peach 🙂
One question, is ‘icing sugar’ powdered sugar or granulated sugar?

Hallo Rhea (I love your name…) Yes, the translator is my nightmare day by day… sure it was peach (it would be nice if someone would try this muffins with some fish inside :-)) . The sugar is powdered. You are welcome in Sicily or in Rome, where I live, whenevere you like. Thanks from heart, ADA
