Homemade Blueberry muffins are the perfect start to any morning. Fluffy and tender and bursting with juicy ripe blueberries. It's your lucky day, because I'm sharing the recipe!
Today my only thought this morning was that the bed was comfy and I didn't really need to rush into the day. My boyfriend was up and off to work, the dog was being quiet the room was nice and dark. It was perfect for all of three seconds. Right about the time I got all snuggled in, a neighbors dog started barking. He continued to bark for the next hour, making every other dog in the area bark, and Marble prance back and forth from the door in case he was missing something. Needless to say, I didn't get up in the best of moods.
Things turned around and I got my game face on for the day. My only real goal was making homemade blueberry muffins. Everything else was just extra gold stars (some days, set your goals low. You'll feel super accomplished that night).
I used the recipe for homemade blueberry muffins featured here.
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups sour cream
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 24 muffins cups or line with paper muffin liners.
Step 2: In a large bowl beat eggs and add sugar, a little at a time while beating. Continue beating and slowly pour in oil while beating. Beat until well combined. Stir in vanilla extract.
Step 3: In a separate bowl mix together flour, salt and baking soda. With a spatula or spoon stir together flour mixture with the egg mixture alternately with the sour cream. Stir until well combined. Fold in blueberries.
Step 4: Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
I am not a fruit person, and the blueberries tasted almost bitter to me, so in the future, I would cut the amount of blueberries called for in half if I was making them for myself. I would also mix in the sour cream after mixing in the sugar with the eggs. It makes the stirring easier when combining with the dry ingredients.
I earned myself some gold stars today. Hopefully the dogs stay quiet.
