Easy Blueberry Muffins
I had some leftover blueberries from when I made cupcakes so when I heard my friend Joy mention that she had blueberry muffins in the oven on facebook, I knew I had to make some. I headed over to bakespace and did a search for blueberry muffins. I found one from my friend Danielle of Cooking for my Peace of Mind. I swear, I have friends that aren't from bakespace but these are my cooking buddies! I chose this recipe because it seemed easy, called for the amount of blueberries I have and I had all the ingredients. That was it, I was sold.
I experimented and sprinkled some sugar on top of some of the cupcakes before they went in the oven and I really liked the way they came out. They looked so pretty. Next time I make them, I'm going to use DD's vanilla sugar and put a nice coating on top.
