Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins have always been one of my favorite breakfast foods, but like many other things, I’m particular about these, too.  I don’t need anything fancy, and I think that having a streusel top is just extra calories to get between me and the blueberries.  For me, there is no such thing as too many blueberries, so I cram as many into the batter as I can.  In fact, it looks pretty much like blueberries just glued together. Then, I throw a few more blueberries on top after spooning the batter into the muffin cups.  Every bite should be full of blueberries, and if you take this approach, it will be.

If you do like a crumble topping, you can add that on.  Just mix a little softened butter with some brown sugar, and put it on top just before putting the pan into the oven.

  2. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in large bowl.
  3. Combine buttermilk, oil, and egg in small bowl.
