Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries!


Yea! The season for blueberries is here.  We used to go and pick our own blueberries when we live in Beaverton, Oregon.  It was a fun summer time adventure to roam around on the blueberry farm in Hillsboro with my young daughters in tow.  We would get our basket full and head home thinking we have more than enough to make muffins and pies.  By the time we pulled into the driveway of our house we barely had enough to make muffins.  
Oh well, they were darn good and the muffins were fabulous.  
You know that blueberries are a brain food, no wonder my girls are so smart!


Look how fresh and plump they are! They are going to make great muffins!
These would be great to serve for breakfast on July 4th.



The Players!



In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder, 
salt and cinnamon.  



In another bowl, whisk together milk, egg and butter.
Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients, stirring until combined thoroughly.  
Fold in blueberries gently, evenly distributed throughout the batter.



Grease muffin tins with Crisco or use muffin cups.  Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filing each cup ¾ full. Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

 

Look at all those luscious blueberries!
