Blondie's Blue Ribbon Blueberry Muffins

Are you tired of me talking about my garden yet? It has been so hot the past few days that I have been lazy. I haven't canned much but instead have done the lazy gals job of picking and freezing the blueberries. Freezing blueberries is easy. Just pick, put in a freezer safe ziplock and put in the freezer. I generally freeze mine in the snack size bags. That size seems to hold a smidge over 1 cup of blueberries. Just the right size for most recipes.

I make a lot of different things with the blueberries but what I am most asked for is my Blueberry Muffin recipe.

Blondie's Blue Ribbon Blueberry Muffins

It's true; I won a blue ribbon umpteen years ago at the County Fair with this recipe. It is easy, and yummy!

6 tbsp butter
2/3 c. sugar
1 egg

Beat above until fluffy; then add:

1 tbsp baking powder
1 ¾ c. A/P flour
¾ tsp salt
½ c. milk
1 tsp lemon extract
½ tsp vanilla
1 cup blueberries

scoop into greased muffin tins

Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minute

They really are yummy. If I was going to add anything else to the recipe I would say, not to over mix once you add the dry to the fluffy sugar/butter. Just fold in gently. The batter will be stiff.

Hey Beth, drive on up, pick a gallon and if you have any left after driving and eating, you will have plenty left for muffins!

They sound delicious. I love blueberries, and I'm in the process of talking my husband into planting some. Have you seen what they go for in the grocery store?! Yikes, makes gas look like a bargain.

This looks good and pretty easy to make, I'll have to give it a try if I get the chance. I can't remember the last time I made blueberry muffins, I think its been years.

Those blueberry muffins sound wonderful. We have gobs of blueberries in Oregon and I often freeze them in little baggies just to pull out and snack on. I think they are a wonderful treat!!

Your garden sounds amazing. Sorry its so hot in your part of the world.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm thinking I will try it and freeze the muffins, so they will stay fresh....and pull one out daily and enjoy it!

Trust your summer continues to go well.
