Why are blueberry muffins so good?
I love a good, bakery-fresh blueberry muffin. Those muffins with the artificial blueberry bits…okay, I admit, those are darn good, too. BUT I try to keep things as fresh as possible in this house. And boyyyy these muffins! *squeals*
Okay, okay, I’ll calm down. I gave y’all the strawberry coffeecake muffins in spring, and though it’s not blueberry season right now in the US, I thought I’d brighten up any cold-weather blues if you so happen to pass by an odd pint of blueberries at the store like I did.
I live in South Florida, by the way. Our weather is summer, lesser summer, fall for a couple days, and post-apocalyptic summer. We got fruit all year round.
These blueberry muffins are the bomb, in fact I say make them the night before a brunch and they are even better the next day! I don’t know what it is about some baked goods and being so good the day after they’re baked. My pumpkin bread is the same way, it’s the BEST two or three days after it’s baked. Mmm…
What were we talking about? Oh yeah, brunch. These complete a brunch of eggs benedict and some sausage or a little breakfast t-bone and some silky scrambled eggs but they are so great as a snack just by themselves.
Gosh, I’m making myself hungry.
Back to blueberry muffins. Look at those blueberries! So good! And so well-distributed!
I learned this little trick when I first got married, watching some youtube video that involved chocolate chips in a cake or something. The lady said to toss the mix-ins in flour so that they won’t fall to the bottom! This ain’t a fruit-on-the-bottom situation, this batter is thick and lovely and a toss in the flour before gently folding the blueberries into the batter.
These also have a little sugar streusel topping that’s totally optional, but why would you opt out of sweet, crunchy goodness?
And they last for 3 days at room temperature in a air-tight container, but they are absolutely the best the next day.
