You gotta love Maine this time of year when the wild Maine blueberries are waiting to be picked. This year there seems to be a bumper crop, and I’m out there gathering. The challenge is not to eat as many as you pick!
I see many a salad, cobbler and muffin in the near future.
Speaking of muffins, there are many different recipes for blueberry muffins. As you might guess, they have similar ingredients—flour, sugar, eggs—but in different proportions and combinations. I’ve never had one I didn’t like, but this is one of my favorites, an accidental happening when I didn’t have enough granulated sugar.
2 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
3 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
3/4 c. milk
5 t. melted butter, unsalted
1 c. blueberries
Combine flour, sugars, salt and baking powder. Mix together eggs, milk and butter. Add to dry ingredients and mix until moistened. Be careful not to overmix. Spoon into greased muffin pans and bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
Now make yourself a good cup of coffee or latte, find a comfortable place to sit with a book or magazine and enjoy a luscious few minutes all your own.
