Bright and early this morning we picked up our produce basket, and a case of blueberries. I'm not completely sure what I was thinking when I ordered all those berries, but I was blinded by the "good price". So as soon as we got home I made blueberry muffins and they were definitely a great way to start a Saturday. I will obviously be making blueberry pie, then freezing a bunch of berries. Stay tuned for more blueberry goodies....and in the meantime try these muffins. They are the easiest thing to make and really yummy.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (may use all one kind of flour)
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shortening
2 tablespoons softened butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed and well drained or 3/4 cup canned blueberries, rinsed and well drained
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together all ingredients except the berries with a pastry blender or large fork. Stir only until the ingredients are blended, do not over-mix. Fold in the berries. Put into 12 greased or lined muffin cups.
Bake 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot with butter.
