A Little Snack...Blueberry Muffins

I spent fifty-cents on day at a yard sale on what has turned out to be the best cook book. Ever.

It's called the Joy of Cooking, and from muffins to Senate Bean soup, crepes to leeks, I have never had a failed recipe. Here is the Blue Berry Muffin recipe with my addition of lemon extract. You may need to double the batch- we eat them all within 20 minutes!

Joy of Cooking Blue Berry Muffins

Preheat oven to 400.

2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Combine in large bowl.

In a smaller bowl:

Melt one stick of butter. Add in:
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon extract

Combine wet ingredients, then folding in the dry. Barely mix the wet and dry till moistened. Add in 1 cup of blueberries (or more, but too many will cause your batter to stay damp). Mix carefully; over stirring will get your batter too dense and stain it.

Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes (clean knife test). Let sit for at least 3 minutes before trying to remove. Makes 12 larger muffins and 12 mini-muffins.

I just love the high crowns on your muffins. They must have made one delicious breakfast. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your muffins up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/03/sweets-for-saturday-10.html
