Snow Day Blueberry Muffins

We got almost 14 inches of snow last night.  I didn’t feel like shoveling it first thing in the morning and the kids are off school.  So, instead of pulling on my boots, coat, hat and gloves, we made blueberry muffins.

Toss blueberries with 2 tsp of liquid mixture and 2 TBS of flour mixture.  This will help keep blueberries suspended in batter and evenly distributed through-out the muffins.

Spray muffin pan with cooking spray and line cups with muffin papers.

Fill cups with batter.  Fill cups completely for big muffin tops. This will yield 4 muffins.  You can split the batter among all 6 cups.  You’ll get more muffins, but smaller tops.  Adjust baking times according to how much you fill the cups.

Bake 22 to 26 minutes, until tooth pick inserted into center of muffin comes out almost clean.
