Blueberry Muffins

I made muffins. Of the blueberry variety.

It’s all Martha’s fault, really. I had no intentions of muffin making.

She’s good that way.

It all started off innocent enough.

Watching a baking show. Blueberry muffins being the featured baked good. Good clean fun.

Also, Sparking my mind with the reality of the two handsome containers of blueberries sitting in my fridge. Just steps away from being made into muffins.

How could I deny them? How could I deny myself?

As you can clearly see, I didn’t.

I whipped out the muffin pans and into baking mode.

Balmy temperatures blossom blueberries from wretched shriveled up terrors into berries so deeply blue and bursting with juice like water balloons on the verge on explosion.

Hello, gorgeous.

The large amount of blueberries in this recipe ensure each muffin explodes with berry goodness. The base is moist and fluffy, the top wonderfully crisp and crunchy.

I’m smitten with the pureness of ingredients in this recipe. Simplicity is a beautiful thing, and creates some down right delicious muffins.

Oh, and just ignore my intense need for a manicure in the following instruction pictures, pretty please? Happy muffin eating!
