Fancy Breakfast Friday: Blueberry Muffins

DSC06757 (1)

These muffins were delicious.  After my success with the breakfast cookies, I pulled out The Family Kitchen* again, knowing I could find something the make at the last minute with ingredients I had on hand.

The downside to this recipe is that I barely had it out of the oven as the kids were sitting down to breakfast.  I only give myself an hour, because I can’t make myself get up earlier than 6:00 am to make Fancy Breakfast Friday.  If I get up at 6:00 am, I am a fun mom, working on a cool, year long project.  If I get up earlier, I have become a crazy, obsessed mom who seriously needs to go back to work.  These muffins should not have taken a full hour to make, but for some reason they did.

The recipe calls for 2 cups of blueberries, which I thought was too many for 12 muffins.  So I used the “dump blueberries in until it looks right” method.

The main problem here was the crumb topping.  Too much flour, not enough sugar.  And the muffins were so full, I could barely get the tablespoon per muffin to stay on top.  I was left with at least a cup of crumb, so I added some sugar and vanilla and put it in two baggies in the freezer for future muffin projects.

These muffins were served with an egg and some fruit.

    LMAO as usual. I too have experienced the morning where making simple muffins takes WAY longer than it should. Am I standing there in a fog? Am I reading Megan’s blog? Where did that extra 40 minutes go? I guess it all depends on what kind of Thursday night you had. ha ha
