My Cure for the Sunday Blues

Blueberry Muffin

Blueberry muffin fresh out of the oven.

Nothing makes me happier than a freshly baked muffin, especially a blueberry one! I have the tendency to buy up tons of fresh, local blueberries during the summer so that I can freeze them and pull them out all winter long. On a recent sunny Sunday while feeling blue, I thought that the perfect pick me up would be to whip up a batch of my Momma’s famous blueberry muffins. Needless to say that the only thing “blue” after eating one of these was my tongue! Enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 4 c flour
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 2c sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 2/3 c canola oil
  • 2 1/2 c blueberries

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Mix dry ingredients and then add the wet. Fold in the blueberries at the very end as to not turn your batter blue. Fill half-way up muffin tins and bake for 12-15 minutes. This recipe makes 12 large muffins.

zesting lemonThe recipe calls for the zest of 2 lemons, but I always add extra! Experiment and add orange or lime zest as well.
