Last week I was inspired by many bloggers and the abundance of blueberries in New Jersey right now, so I made 2 blueberry desserts!
I made a Blueberry Comfort Cake from a fabulous baking blog called Boscoe The Cookie Doctor. This guy can really bake, he intimidates me. The cake came out very good, almost like a giant blueberry muffin.
After giving most of it away to the neighbors and passers by, I made a batch of my once a year blueberry muffins (I don't know why I only make them once a year, maybe because I don't love to bake).
They are lemony and have a wonderful crunchy topping due to the sugar/nutmeg combo.
Here is my recipe. Makes 12 big muffins (I am getting a "muffin top" over the sides of my jeans!).
Lemony Blueberry Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
1 stick of butter, melted
1 1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
zest of a lemon
Mix all together, then add the following, one item at a time:
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
After you have incorporated all the ingredients, add 2/3 cup whole milk & a pint or more of blueberries.
Pour into lined muffin tins and sprinkle w/ a sugar/nutmeg mixture (about 2 tbsp of each total). Bake 375 for 25 minutes.
