Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins by Cheng and 3 Kids

If you have school-age kids then you know exactly how I feel in the morning. Our daily routine in the mornings --- breakfast making, lunch boxes, making sure kids are awake, taking turns in the bathroom (we live in a one bathroom house), walking with my first grader to school --- can be a little hectic. So would you blame me if I really love weekends? Or in this case, fall break?

And what better way to enjoy these not-so-crazy mornings than with a cup of coffee and a blueberry muffin. I adapted this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book and they turned out great! Moist and not too sweet. Hmmm... Maybe I should have made more. But before I do that let me share the recipe with you. So here it is.


1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease twelve 2-1/2 inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups. Set Aside. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl combine egg, milk, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should not be lumpy). Fold in blueberries.
  3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. If desired, sprinkle sparkling white sugar over muffin batter in cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes.Remove from muffin cups; serve warm.
