One of my favorite things in the world is waking up on a lazy Sunday and making blueberry muffins. The smell wafts throughout the house as they bake, and I can’t wait to get them out of the oven to butter them while they are piping hot.
It reminds me of when I was little… My grandma used to make the BEST blueberry muffins. This recipe is darned close! Now I make them for my own children. We have a tradition – every Sunday morning they whole family knows that these blueberry muffins will be waiting for them when they wake up. I love the quiet time in the kitchen and they love waking up to that fresh aroma of warm blueberries.
There’s something about the smell of freshly baked blueberry muffins that makes me feel happy and warm inside. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when I see those berries popping through the muffin tin. Hope you love this made-from-scratch recipe as much as I do! Let me know how they turn out – they are sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Can these blueberry muffins be frozen?
YES! You can make a batch and once they are cool place in a freezer bag. I like to push as much air out as I can without crushing the muffins. When you are ready for a blueberry muffin you can take them out to thaw and place in the oven (or toaster oven) to warm them back up. You can also place in the microwave but I personally love the oven method.
Can I double the recipe?
YES – just make sure you are measuring the ingredients carefully!
