I have looked far and wide for a really good blueberry muffin recipe.  I have had many flops and many “just ok” muffins and I have come to the conclusion that there just isn’t one blueberry muffin recipe that I want to be my one and only.  I just cannot commit to one variation of this blueberry loveliness.  Today…I will share with you what will be my go-to, please the masses muffin with blueberry goodness.  The kids all loved them.  Nobody said they were too tart, to squashy, too dense, or too messy.  (Yes, we have had a lot of flops when it comes to muffins here!)  I did appreciate the fact that they stay together so well, yet are nice and fluffy. After combining a few different recipes and throwing out several…here it is

Blueberry Muffins

In one bowl combine: 

4C flour

1 1/3C brown sugar

2T baking powder

1 t baking soda

1T pumpkin pie spice (I will often use this when cinnamon or other spices are called for, love it)

3C fresh blueberries (or frozen)

In another bowl mix together: ( with whisk attachment)

4 eggs

2C buttermilk

2 sticks melted butter

1/2 t almond extract

1t vanilla extract

combine dry and wet ingredients, scoop into muffin tins and bake @375 for 15 min.




Our home is full of the aroma of coffee and fresh blueberry muffins.

Children are crafting another tent out of the old trampoline out in the cold sun-lit yard.

The books of the old testament hang on the dining room wall.

We are almost out of jam, and need desperately to make more for ourselves and the neighbors.

We had many great conversations about God, creation, Love and why we should not judge others today.

The house is quiet and peaceful at 4pm.

Everyone has their reasons for choosing the schooling method for their children they like best.  Days like today are why we made our choice.  Slower pace, more peace, great conversations.  IMG_0525
