After a long power outage, the first thing that I wanted was home cooked yummy baked goods. I decided to use my slightly frozen blueberries to make muffins. It was a great after dinner treat and a great way to clear out the freezer to make my freezer nice and clean.
The batter looks a little purple from all the berries but it still cooks up to a nice pretty white muffin.
The batter usually makes 16 muffins which I normally forget and fill my two 6 muffin cups and then I have to get creative with the remaining batter. I decided on a coffee cake and made a strudel to go on top from the recipe that I used on the pumpkin bread the other day. Strangely, the topping sank to the bottom of the pan. I was a little worried about how it was going to turn out when I saw that it was not really on the top of the cake as I expected.... we just decided it was upside down cake. It was still super yummy so even failures are yummy in baking.
This is a recipe that I got from my mom ages ago and it is the recipe that I always use for blueberry muffins. I will write the recipe so that other people can understand it since my mom's recipe is written a little strange and most people don't follow recipes with her directions... I have had years of training. I hope that you enjoy too!!
