Blueberry Muffins

I don't often post recipes on my blog, as most of what I make is just basic, everyday stuff. Not fancy (although my meat and potato husband thinks I get too fancy or healthy sometimes) but it's good and almost always homemade. Here is a recipe for you for blueberry muffins. I LOVE these!! The blueberries we had picked this past summer at an organic farm not too far from us. I froze them immediately and use them throughout the winter for baking. (Hint, freeze berries flat on cookie sheets, then, once they are frozen, put them into plastic freezer bags. Then all your berries will be separate instead of one big block, allowing for easy measuring.)

Blueberry Muffins (makes 12-15 muffins)

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
span >3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
3/4 cup butter (melted but not hot)
2 cups blueberries

Preset oven to 400 degrees. Place paper muffin cups in muffin tin. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Beat eggs lightly, add milk and butter. Mix together just until moist. Fold in blueberries. Fill each cup full. Sprinkle tops with additional sugar if desired. Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center.

(Hint: Spray inside of paper muffin cups with cooking spray before filling, then the papers will peel of cleanly)

Any berry works in this recipe, I also love them with blackberries or raspberries, or a combination of two or three. If you don't have any that you have picked a great substitute are Wyman's Berries.
Eat them hot from the oven with a pat of butter.. yum!

(When I was working on this post I didn't realize that Alicia was also making blueberry muffins. She grabbed hers from Ina, mine are from my mother in law..)
I'd love to see what everyone has for favorite winter cozy foods.. let me know if you have something delightful!
