blueberry muffins for Sunday...

I have made these blueberry muffins for years. They are WB's favorite and our kids like them too. I don't like blueberries. I love to photograph them but for some reason, I haven't liked them since I was a kid. When they came out of the oven, I wanted to take a photo. I took several but none of them were really what I wanted. I needed to wait for different light. This afternoon, the light was right. I wanted a bite out the muffin for the photo so I took one. Then something strange happened. As my kids used to say, "My taste buds have changed."

It looks like WB may have to share.

Blueberry Muffins

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup skim milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup blueberries (or a few more)

In medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then milk, and vanilla; beat until nearly smooth. In small bowl stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to milk mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be lumpy). Toss berries with 1 tablespoon of flour; fold into batter. Spoon into 12 greased muffin cups. Bake in preheated 425° oven for 25 minutes or until evenly golden brown. I usually take them out at 23 minutes.

Dearest Barbara,

Oh, I ate my blueberries today with Greek yogurt and I LOVE them fresh. Got them at Costco and did you know it is an antioxident super fruit?
Just read my post about it with some more info.
That might help your tastebuds even more change to liking them!
Your photo is super with the few fresh ones on the side...
Love to you,

Wow, Barbara! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I guess we're never too old (or too young) to not only try new things but revisit old things.
