a very blueberry day | guest post by Sonja

In America we've been deceived about our food. One of the worst and nastiest deception I believe is the muffin. When you buy them at the store they're either sticky because they're loaded with sugar, or dry because they've been sitting on the shelf for a month. 

If you've never had a fresh-from the oven muffin, you've missed out. 

But thankfully for you, it's easily remedied. 
Making a muffin batter takes less than 20 minutes, and cooking it? only 25.

Blueberry Muffins
  • 1.5 cups of flour 
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk 
  • 2 eggs, beaten 
  • 1/4 cup oil 
  • 1 cup of fresh (frozen) blueberries
Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine remaining ingredients; add to dry ingredients all at once. Blend together until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be lumpy). Fill greased muffin pan/cups 2/3 full. 

Bake at 425 F for 25 minutes. 
 Remove from oven, take out of pan, and place on cooling racks.

Topping hot muffins with butter is my favorite way to eat them. You?

Much Love, dear friends!
