We were in Hays, KS over the Labor Day Weekend, visiting with Larry’s family. There was a lot of visiting and a couple of days of baking. I took my laptop in hopes of being able to post while we were gone, but I forgot my password, and didn’t really feel like changing it yet again, so I was unable to post anything. Besides, a little anticipation is a good thing, right?! 🙂
We took some of our perishables to Kansas with us so they would not go bad and we could share them with the family. One of things we took was the leftover blueberries I purchased for my cooking lesson. http://teaching my first cooking class . Our niece Lexi (niece-in-law) was real excited to get the blueberries and asked if I could show her how to make blueberry muffins. Of course I could help her with that. Definitely my pleasure. 🙂 Lexi found a simple recipe and soon blueberry muffins were in the works and in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup blueberries, coated with flour
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 400* F
Spray the muffin pans with cooking spray.
Mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside.
Mix the egg, milk and vegetable oil together and set aside.
Gently coat the berries with flour. Coating the berries before adding them to the batter will help them from “bleeding” all through the batter and will help them keep their shape better too.
Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture and mix just until everything is thoroughly combined. Gently fold in the berries, so not to break them. Then fill your muffin pans to about 3/4 full.
Bake the muffins for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are fluffy and golden brown. Remove them from the oven and let them cool on a cooling rack, or just eat them fresh out of the oven, while they are hot, like we did.
Lexi and I made mini muffins and regular sized muffins. We had a good visit and enjoyed our muffins afterwards. It was a fun baking day. We are already looking forward to the next time time we can get together and bake together again.
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
