Wild Blueberry Muffins

The gals on the Art Fayre committee were coming here for an early meeting the other morning so I decided to serve them warm muffins. These are very easy to make. I mixed up the dry ingredients the night before so it was even easier! The recipe was from The Joy of Cooking and I used their basic muffin recipe, so you can add any fruit or nuts that you have available.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Whisk in another bowl:
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4-8 tablespoons melted butter (or oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Stilr with a few light strokes just until the dry ingredients are moistened.

I added frozen wild blueberries from last summer and mixed them in lightly.

Divide batter into pan. I added coarse, sanding sugar to the tops for texture (just like at Tim Horton's). Bake at 400F for 12 to 15 minutes.

Yum-o. There weren't many left after the meeting. Nice taste and not too heavy. Try it!

The day after my parents were married in 1941, my mother made blueberry muffins (she was first generation US from a Nova Scotia family). My father, raised in Texas, said "They'd be OK if it weren't for the damned blueberries." They lived, I believe, happily ever after, but I didn't have a blueberry muffin until I went to college. And donuts? You just can't beat a blueberry Timbit!

I lived near blueberry fields growing up and I didn't really realize people either wanted or made muffins in flavors other then blueberry until I went to school. Your look lovely and now I want one with my coffee.
