There are a few things that most people know about me: I love my boys more than anything in the world, there is no food better than mashed potatoes, red wine is a gift from above and.....I do NOT like the heat! This past week we had 4 days straight with temps over 100 degrees (most of them 107). This may not sound so bad to most of you but I don't have A/C....and I'm a baker! There is not much that I will ever complain about, and never publicly, but I do not mind being a baby and telling you all that I have been whining for days about being hot! I'm sure you can all understand how delighted I was this morning when I awoke to 63 degrees outside and a forecast of temps in the 80's at the highest. Let's hope they are right in that forecast because I immediately turned on the oven and started baking!
My oldest LOVES blueberry muffins and he bought blueberries the other day in the hopes that I would possibly bake some for him. I pretty much laughed at the request but with the lower temps this morning I decided to be a sweet mama and surprise him.
These are very simple blueberry muffins and super easy to make! The muffin is tender and moist, there are blueberries in every bite but not so many that you don't taste the muffin itself, and it is not too sweet! Plus, just look how pretty they are!!!
I'm off to enjoy the cool morning air before it gets warm again and I have to become a grumpy hermit! Happy Saturday!
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
Heat oven to 375°. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Whisk butter, eggs and milk in a bowl. Combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl and add to the wet ingredients (do not over stir); fold in blueberries. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups and bake until muffins are golden brown and a tester comes out clean, around 20 minutes.
