Rich Blueberry Muffins

Rich Blueberry Muffins

I froze a lot of blueberries when they were in season. This time of year I often enjoy using some of those frozen berries in baked goods.

This muffin recipe is one of my favorites. The secret, I think, is the cup of melted butter that is folded into the batter. I also add a little cinnamon, which goes so well with the berries.

You end up with a rich muffin with a crumbly, tender texture and a great flavor. This recipe makes 36 muffins, so you will have extra to freeze.  They freeze great.
