Blueberry Muffins with Rose's Bread Bible Bakers

This is the first recipe 
are making together.

These simple muffins are incredible.
A buttery muffin they have
a wonderfully rich crumb.

Trying for a mis en place
instead of a mess all over the place

This is a bowl, wooden spoon
and whisk recipe 
for a bit of fun.

Butter and sugar creamed

The addition of sour cream
makes a lovely batter.
With muffins, just like scones,
it's a light hand at this point
which feels counter intuitive.

These are my standard brand of frozen wild 
and normally are quite small.
Not this year.

Rose's finishing touch is a sprinkling
of sugar with fresh grated nutmeg.
Paired with the lemon zest
inside the batter
they are my 
new favorite muffins.
I've made loads of  blueberry muffins
over the years
for the grandchildren.
These are better.

A bit of nostalgia 
kicked in reading 
This was her first blueberry muffin
which brought back the memory
of the first time my mother made them.
A boxed mix with a little tiny can
of the smallest blueberries
tucked inside.
It was quite a novelty.

Otis Spunkmeyer
was the muffin man
game changer 
here in California.
Suddenly muffins were everywhere,
replacing donuts as the
go to breakfast on the run.

common ingredients?
Mixing up a batch of Rose's
Blueberry Muffins
with real ingredients
is simple and quick.
And far tastier.

  1. Ha haaa ha, you don't have propylene glycol monosterate or mono and diglycerides in your pantry? Great post Vicki illustrating why we bake at home ...lovely muffins for your family. :)

  2. I would have loved finding a tiny can of tiny blueberries in a packet when I was a child. These muffins look very moist and, of course, delicious.

  3. Yummmmm! Can't wait to try these, going to double the recipe like you suggested. Didn't know that blueberry muffin mixes came like that once upon a time! -Elle

  4. These look wonderful! I feel like making these now!
