We bought a huge container of blueberries from Costco. Yay! But, they quickly got to the point of use-them-or-throw-them-away. So, the search for a muffin recipe began.
I wanted to find a super easy recipe. Super, super easy recipe.
I found this one. I don’t often make Paula Deen’s recipes. But, this sounded so yummy. 1 stick of butter? Oh yea. A pile of sugar on top? Yep. Good idea.
I got ready to make the muffins and realized that we were out of baking powder. Ok. The next day, with a brand new package of baking powder, I got ready to make the muffins…..and we don’t have any eggs. Ok. Finally, day three, I made the muffins. Finally.
They came together fairly quickly. Since we had so many blueberries that needed to be used, I added an extra half of a cup of blueberries to the recipe. Would that throw everything off? Only one way to find out….
They taste pretty good and are full (!!!!!!!) of blueberries. I don’t quite understand the sugar on top. I kept them in the oven a bit longer than needed to bake the muffins but the sugar didn’t do anything. It just sort of sat on top. I thought that the sugar would caramelize a little or something but that didn’t happen. The texture is a bit off. The muffins fall apart very easily. Perhaps that is because I added so many blueberries? Maybe the added blueberries made the muffins structurally unsound.
But, the important thing is that the finished muffins do taste good and very blueberry-y. And bonus: baby girl loves them! She loves picking out the blueberries and then eating the rest of the muffin.
