Light and Rich Blueberry Muffin
These blueberry muffins are so light and yet rich in flavor, great for breakfast or an afternoon snack. They are loaded with blueberries, moist, soft and slightly crumbly.
I picked so many blueberries from my Sunshine Blue, which is small to medium size blueberry planted in a large planter. It is so much fun to be able to pick your own
– Why is this muffin recipe different?
Two different combinations were used…butter with vegetable oil and, cake flour with all-purpose flour. Vegetable oil not only lighten the batter are well as give moist. Cake flour will give the batter a lighter texture.
– How easy is this recipe?
Like most of the muffin recipes, it is pretty straight forward, just make sure to not overmix the batter.
– Can I use frozen blueberries?
Absolutely, I used fresh ones because by blueberry bush was loaded with blueberries. If using frozen blueberries, lightly coat the berries with all-purpose flour before adding to the batter.
