Blueberry Muffins

You'd have thought it was London with all the rain that's been falling in California over the last week.   I know we need the water and we'll be thankful come spring/summer, but come on, enough is enough!  When the weather gets like this all I want to do is stay at home in  my flannel pjs and bake!

A recent episode of America's Test Kitchen featured the best blueberry muffins and fortuitously I had all the recipe ingredients in my kitchen so I had to make them, right?  I just love blueberries.  They're one of nature's super foods; full of flavor and rich in antioxidants.  Blueberries have been shown to improve night vision (take that carrots!) and may even reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.  Who knew that all this power was packed in to such a tiny blue fruit.

The recipe is very easy and straightforward to make and the muffins tasted fantastic.  Only problem was they were a pain to take out of the muffin tin in one piece.  Despite spraying the nonstick pan with cooking spray, as was instructed, the finished muffins didn't come out so easily. In fact, the tops were the only things that managed to come off.  Next time I'll either bake them longer to ensure the bottoms and sides are really browned or I'll just use paper liners.
