Quest For The Perfect Blueberry Muffin Recipe

My quest this week was to find the perfect blueberry muffin recipe. In my internet wonderings, I came across a terrific site called Not without Salt. Ashley of Not without Salt is not only a talented baker, but also a gifted photographer.The site is so elegant with its beautiful photography and the wonderful recipes look so enticing that you will definitely be inspired.

So I decided to try The Classic Blueberry Muffins-the step by step pictures were oh so helpful. Ashley added a few recommendations at the bottom of the recipe. I took her advice and changed a few things-first, I substituted buttermilk and added 1/8 tsp. baking soda. Next, for the topping, instead of using 1/2 cup of white sugar, I used 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I did like the crispy topping that formed on the tops.  And last, I used frozen blueberries-I know, fresh is definitely better. This was a little tricky because I had to let them come to room temperature, drain them with a paper towel, and stir them in ever so gently. Oh yeah, one more thing, I had to bake them slightly longer than 15 minutes-more like 18-but that might just be my oven. All in all I think my first attempt at blueberry muffins was a success, thanks to the wonderful recipe from Not without Salt.
