Sunday Morning Blueberry Muffins

There are times when I do not want a healthy muffin.

This morning, I wasn’t looking for a whole grain, low-fat, no sugar kind of muffin. I wanted a full fat, tons of sugar, delicate texture – that means refined flour – blueberry muffin.

It’s Sunday morning, Ralph is not feeling well and the skies are grey. I need a treat!

Jumbo Blueberry Muffins

preheat oven 375*F

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

2 extra-large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla

1/2 cup whole milk

3 cups blueberries

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together and set aside

Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy

Add eggs, one at a time, beating until light

Add vanilla and beat well

Add flour mixture and milk, alternatively by thirds – mix well

Fold in blueberries

Divide batter between 12 greased or paper lined muffin cups

Check at 25 minutes – muffins should be golden and baked through.

It’s a perfect day to curl up with a great book, a big cup of steaming, perfectly brewed coffee and as many of these lovely muffins as I need.

I’ll be back on the bran buds tomorrow…

Thanks for reading.
