Blueberry Muffins

I’ve always been a big fan of Blueberry Muffins; after all, they were what I requested for my first birthday because I didn’t like cake. (It’s okay to assume I was a weird child. I like cake now.)

Lately, Jon and I have been frequenting a French bakery here in town. The bakery is owned and operated by a Frenchman named Robert. He’s such a character. We love going in to speak with him. Our favorite thing about the bakery is the blueberry muffins. He has some of the best around.

Some weekends, I’m just too lazy to get up and drive across town to buy muffins. It is just easier sometimes to make them myself. I’m glad I did; they are awesome!

Fill each spot of the muffin tin 2/3 of the way to the top.

Bake on 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes.

Remove the muffins and add the turbinado sugar to each muffin. Gently push the tops of the muffins down some to prevent a dome-shaped top from forming.

Return to the oven for another 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the muffin.

Allow the muffins to cool in the pan, then transfer to a baking rack to finish cooling.
