The crocus have bloomed, and that means Spring is here!!! We've been having gorgeous weather here in Pittsburgh, and its inspired me to try a bunch of new recipes! I'll have them all up here soon, but for now I wanted to post a recipe that reminded me of Springtime.
I made these soft and fluffy blueberry muffins a couple months ago at a friends house and they went perfectly with our healthy breakfast!! It took less than an hour and is a perfect weekend snack. I got this yummy original recipe through Pinterest (as usual) from Disneyfamily.com!
Here's what you'll need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I used fresh)
2 extra large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 stick (1/2 cup) melted butter, slightly cooled
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut in small cubes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
The directions are easy as pie!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add milk, eggs, butter and vanilla and whisk just until combined.
Gently fold in blueberries.
Spoon batter into greased muffin tin, filling each cup about two-thirds full.
Meanwhile, make the topping. Mix ingredients for topping together in a small bowl. Using your fingers, or a fork, mash the butter into the flour until large crumbles form. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the muffins.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm, or at room temperature.
I ate mine with breakfast
Hope you enjoy!!
