BF Blueberry Muffins
The story began with our older girl returning home from school one day with a muffin from a bake sale. "Mommy, can I have it? It smells soooo good". You know that smell of commercially packaged blueberry muffins? Some sort of blueberry flavor is added that is very fragrant, but likely artificial. Smells much like a scratch-n-sniff sticker - or, like this blueberry muffin, ha! This bake sale muffin had that very fragrant aroma. It most certainly contained dairy and eggs, and was also made with white flour (making it very cake-like, and therefore appealing to a youngster). I said to her "hun, how about I make you a batch of blueberry muffins very soon?" Her reply "but, will they be like this?" I know what that meant - like a cupcake!
And, on the topic of muffins, I'll be sharing the Strawberry Goji Muffin recipe very soon!
