Fresh Blueberry Fuffins



Catagory: Breads*
Difficulty: Very Easy
Not Very Healthy

When she was a toddler... my daughter called muffins "fuffins". Happiness is a warm home-made muffin with eggs,bacon and French roast cawfee on a winter weekend. Or any weekend. The only problem is , home-made "fuffin" recipes almost always turn out a little too tough and too flour-y for my taste. Give me a wonderful store-bought muffin any day over those! But this recipe is different. I think my sister Sarah first found these... they melt in your mouth! And so easy to whip up for a lazy weekend breakfast! From San Francisco A La Carte Junior League Cookbook Yield: 12 muffins 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 C flour--unsifted
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 C sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 C milk
4 T melted butter
1C fresh or frozen blueberries (frozen works really well!)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar into mixing bowl.
In separate bowl or in a liquid measuring cup, measure and thoroughly combine milk, egg and butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in milk mixture, stirring with a fork untill just moistened. Fold in berries, folding no more than 5 times (otherwise you will have blue muffins). Spoon into 8 buttered muffin tins all the way full. Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm or cool. May be frozen and micorwaved for 30 seconds any day!
