Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Life happens.  Sometimes one is unable to do all of the things to which one is obligated.  It isn't because there isn't a desire to do them.  It isn't because interest has waned.  It could be because there just aren't enough hours in the day and days in the week for it to happen.  Or, it could be that there isn't access to a kitchen.... That has been the situation for me this summer.  Life just happened....

I had committed myself to monthly participation in Barefoot Bloggers.  I was not able to consistently fulfill that obligation this summer.  My participation was hit and miss.  I was able to hit when I had a kitchen...and missed when I did not!  Sadly, I was removed from the group. 

Over the next few weeks I will be playing catch-up so I hope you enjoy Barefoot Contessa recipes as I do!

I had gotten some fresh blueberries in the "veggie box" this week.  They were begging to be in a muffin!  As I mixed the batter for the muffins, I noticed that it was more stiff than most muffin batters.  I mounded it in the muffin tin as the recipe said to "fill the cups to the top"....in my mind I was getting a message that this was not going to be good.  I had visions of muffins running all over the oven.  Bring out the cookie sheet!


I could have one of two things...lovely muffins that peaked beautifully or I could have one large flat muffin....guess what I had.  


You were right.  What came out of the oven was one large pan of muffins that melted together.  It didn't matter, what they lost in beauty, they made up for in taste! 



The muffins were very moist and not too sweet.  They were perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee. 



Square muffins taste just fine!  You can get the recipe here.



Barefoot Bloggers made Blueberry Muffins in July.  I am just a bit late in posting!

  5. Oh my! You have had two Ina mishaps. But thanks for sharing them anyway. We all have flops like my chicken roll ups. The only reason I did not want to share the recipe was because it just plan tasted awful. At least Ina's cake and muffins were good.
