Blueberry Muffins

Share this post

Making fluffy and moist Blueberry Muffins has been a part of my morning tradition since I was a child. And honestly, nothing beats Blueberry Muffins fresh out of the oven.

When I was a little girl, my mom owned a catering business and worked a lot of nights. I would have sleepover parties at my Nonnie’s house and every morning we would get up and make blueberry muffins together.

They usually were from a box (and I am embarrassed to admit to you that I do love a boxed blueberry muffin) but I remember her letting me mix the batter and crack the eggs. I also remember learning to crack the eggs into another bowl instead of the actual batter bowl because you never know when you are going to get a bad egg. I think on that particular morning we made a trip to Dunkin Donuts for our blueberry muffin fix. But I loved this morning tradition and still do.

There is nothing better than a blueberry muffin fresh out of the oven. Well, maybe if you slather it in some sweet cream butter. Then there really is nothing better. I love to bake, but I do not necessarily want to have baked goods around. You see, I lack self-control.

So I usually will bake to my heart’s content and then as soon as I can, I pawn off my baked goods to some unsuspecting person. On this particular day, I had gorgeous Victoria Island blueberries that needed to be used and not a ton of time so a muffin was the obvious solution.

The thing that I love about muffins is that the whole process from conception to eating can be completed in about 30 minutes. Really, it is just a matter of mixing dry into wet and putting them into the oven. Simple. Easy. A perfect way to start a morning. I was so inspired by my delicious little muffin that I baked a second batch with new flavors to be shared with you at a later time.

Who was the unsuspecting person that received these blueberry muffins you ask? The lovely office staff at William’s (and soon to be Ava’s) school. I love being able to live so close to their school that the muffins were still warm when I delivered them. That would make me happy. I hope that it made them happy.

About an hour after I dropped the muffins off I got an email asking for the recipe. I guess that they liked them.

This recipe comes from the The Gourmet Cookbook. I have to be honest with you here, this book was a gift, and I was a little disappointed when I opened it. It has no pictures. Pictures are my favorite thing about cookbooks. This is a book that I probably would never have bought myself, but a book that truly is my go-to cookbook.

I find myself leafing through it every now and again and finding a new gem that I need to try or one that I need to make again. This recipe is no different. A tender muffin full of fresh berries. A crumb top that adds a little something extra. A truly delicious and simple blueberry muffin.

Just made these and they taste delicious! I live in Brasil and it's hard to find blueberries here, unfortunately. But once I found them, I HAD to make blueberry muffins!

BTW I love your blog, Bree.

Here's a picture of them: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=649518758410046&set=a.408032435892014.111057.320849521276973&type=1&relevant_count=1

I am so glad! I never would have thought that blueberries would be hard to get! You can use any kind of berry, and chocolate chips are always good too. :)

Found this on Pinterest. I just made a batch (with strawberries) and they are great!!! But I only had enough batter for seven muffins. How many should a batch make?
