Blueberry Muffins


Thanks to everyone who participated in our first quiz. I was not expecting nearly 40 voters. Good to see though. The most popular vote, by a large but not statistically significant (yes, I'm that much of a geek that I tested it) number, is "Only very few are welcome". In hindsight, this response option is not a very good one because it could either mean only a small number of people are allowed in the kitchen to help or only a select small group of people are allowed in the kitchen. I'll take it to mean the latter, that's how I intended it.



I've been wanting to make these blueberry muffins for a while. Randi's blueberry muffin recipe is really quick and easy to follow. The muffins are great! Here is another recipe too.



Blueberry Muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
2 eggs
1 tsp finely grated lemon rind
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 350F. Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add sugar and combine. Whisk sour cream, eggs, lemon rind, and oil together in a bowl. Stir in the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the blueberries. To make muffins: fill a dozen 1/2 cup muffin tins about 2/3 full and bake for 25-30 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean.



They are not very sweet. They're nice and light.



Have a happy Easter everyone! I expect that large amounts of food will be created in our households this weekend. I'm sure we'll blog all about it.

My mom used to make us blueberry muffins for breakfast - it was one of my favorite morning surprises.

Blueberry muffins are SOOO my favorite! I must have had one for breakfast every day of my life until I moved out of my parent's house. These look so great. I love that they are not super sweet. Mm...

Listen.. I lack muffin pans, so how about you just fedex me some muffins?

Food blogs are evil. They make you want to buy things... and cook things.

These look delicious!! I swear, I wish I could bake. Every time I see I see sweet things, I wish I was not only a better baker, but also wish I had an extra stomach to eat more! There's always too much left over for only 2 people! happy easter...

Those muffins look really good! I was one of the people that picked "Only very few are welcome" and by that I meant that there are only some people that I'm okay sharing a kitchen with, and I'm never okay with having lots of people in the kitchen! Unless it was some kind of special event I guess.
