Simple Homemade Blueberry Muffins

Simple Homemade Blueberry Muffins

I use to be so scared to bake anything. I was no good at it. Then I decided to skip being scared and just practice. Baking is hard for me because I tend to “eyeball” or “judge” on the amount of an ingredient. With baking you can not do this.  Baking is literally science, not just “a science” like the saying.  If you are off on one ingredient, another ingredient may not do what it is suppose to. So, don’t be scared to bake, just make sure you follow the recipe exactly. Start with something simple like this easy blueberry muffin recipe.

Remember: 

  • Always follow baking recipes EXACTLY
  • Always use real unsalted butter when a recipe calls for “butter or margarine” .   Trust me, it makes a difference.
