Blueberry Muffins

I like the practicality of a good blueberry muffin. The kind of dessert that it’s easy to put  together from scratch in less than 10 minutes, the hardest part is to wait for them to cook in the oven..;)

It’s my daughter, actually, who has been asking for these for a while. I promised her that when I get fresh blueberries we’ll make a batch together. The reality is that every time I get fresh blueberries we eat them on their own, fresh and juicy in a bowl. Can’t resist.

So for this reason, I could never make these often.. 😉

Whilst sweets are not normally part of our breakfast, I believe that, ever so often, a homemade slice of cake, cookie or muffin can be a cheerful way to wake us up and why not, satisfy our sweet tooth at the same time..despite using only 1/3 cup of honey here for the whole batch 😉

This is especially true when we use genuine ingredients.
