Food: Jumbo Yogurt and Blueberry Muffins.

Blueberries are my favorite berry.

When I’m in the mood for quick baking I turn to muffins. and I always think of blueberry muffins. Yes, I should probably be a bit more adventurous but hey, at least I know what I like.

Look at the lonely half of muffin without butter. What a shame.

Blueberries have made an appearance on this blog before, here and here.

Thanks to The Pioneer Woman for this recipe circa August 2008 -There is nothing like bringing back a recipe from 2008. I mean that was years ago.

I doctored it up a bit for the mile high city that I live in. And according to the PW herself, these are the awesome-est blueberry muffins…you be the judge.

  1. Okay… I must say that I too LOVE blueberries, but prefer wild Maine berries – tiny, sweet, melt in your mouth! I typically buy an entire flat and freeze them for use all year long – great mid winter muffins… the best!

  2. Eugene has lots of berries in the freezer, just waiting to be baked into these muffins.

  3. I love blueberries! Sadly in Israel we don’t really have them except frozen 😦 But these look seriously good and will have to adapt them with another fruit.
