We had a mad craving for muffins this morning, so I made Blueberry- Maple Muffins. I was finding fresh blueberries at a good price for a while recently, but that great deal seems to have disappeared for now. Costco still has them... that's probably your best bet if you're lucky enough to have a Costco near you. Since I have one of those handy-dandy Foodsavers, I had blueberries already pre-measured and packaged in my freezer. Along with my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker, that Foodsaver is the greatest purchase I've made in years. I now purchase meat, fish and fruit in bulk at Costco, portion it all out and freeze it. It never gets freezer burn and the fruit is just as good as fresh. Love it! Best money ever spent.
I like to stick a few of the fresh blueberries on top of each muffin so they bake up pretty. And add a little sprinkle of coarse sugar to make them sparkly.
You'll get a fresh, juicy blueberry in every bite. They're moist as can be too.
With a hint of maple flavor, these might just be our new favorite muffins. But I'll have to test out a couple dozen more recipes... just to make sure.
