Blueberry Muffins


I love blueberry muffins. The best blueberry muffins I have ever had was at a hospital. No hospital in particular, just a hospital. You know how they have those little eateries in the hall stocked with soup, salad, coffee and pastries, and some weird dish that doesn’t belong at the hospital like Mongolian beef…It is there that I have always found the best blueberry muffins; large & tightly wrapped in saran wrap, delicious! Alas, they don’t have those eateries filling the halls at hospitals here in Mexico so I set out to bake some great muffins at home.

Delicious Rating: I think I will stick to the Hospital’s blueberry muffins. These aren’t bad, just not what I wanted. Very easy recipe to cook though. The muffins turned out too crumbly for me, falling apart at every second. The batter was thick but the blueberries all sunk to the bottom so there wasn’t that blueberryness (yes, I know) in every bite. Next time I will try something different instead of repeating this one.

I just love creamed butter and sugar. Sometimes I eat it…you know you do too!

 Be gentle and fold in the blueberries, don’t just mix super hard. You will crush them and have a purple blue muffin, which is good too.

You can also add this batter to a bread pan if you don’t want muffins.
