Pickin blueberries (muffins)

So, you know how I just recently posted a blueberry crumb muffin? Well, again with the blueberry muffins. I am on a quest for my GO TO Bluebee Muffin. I mean I suppose you dont have to just have ONE muffin recipe that you use. But I am looking for that one that says “make me, make me!” I found a recipe that sounded good, I fell in love with the picture. But it had one major problem. Now, everyone who really knows me, knows that I have this weird word association thing with food. If I don’t like the word, I will not eat it! Yep, it’s true. I can see some of you now, rolling your eyes, thinking “gosh she is so weird”. Mm-hmm, you know who you are. Ok, so one of those words I truly dislike, is YOGURT. It is an awful sounding word, right? Right? Anyone?? I have never tasted it….I never will. The word really bugs me. The recipe I found, calls for that awful sounding stuff. Hmmm, what to do…..ah-ha! Sour cream!!!! YES, I used sour cream. I also used orange zest instead of lemon zest and I made orange glaze instead of lemon glaze. Oh, and I used vanilla extract instead of almond extract. But otherwise it’s the same recipe as the one I found on line! haahhahahaa. Oh! and I used more bluebees. So basically, I created my own unique recipe and am I ever glad I did. Deeeeeeliciousl This one is more muffiny, where the last one I posted was more like a coffee cake. Still not quite there yet….my search continues. But in the meantime, this one just might work. Maybe.

  1. Ok, so I have the muffins cooling on the counter. Hope they taste as good as yours. Going to give a few to one of my blueberry loving neighbors. Then on to making Sally Lunn bread and homemade soup. It’s getting chilly here.

  2. I remember making blueberry muffins from the box. Little can of wee berries included. The first time I ate a muffin with a BIG berry, I almost swooned! Yours look amazing!

  3. Wow!! A Blueberry Muffin with enough blueberries to actually taste!! These look so yummy I am going to bake them right now if i can find blueberries at the store.
