On several blogs, we’ve talked about similar recipes – one made from scratch and one that gets a head start with a convenient muffin mix. The recipe you choose may be determined by your cooking skill or simply the amount of time you have that day.
Today I want to share with you a recipe for Homemade Blueberry Muffins. Although it requires measuring out a few ingredients, self-rising flour actually simplifies this recipe. If you happen to have fresh or frozen blueberries, you probably have all the ingredients on hand.
This recipe is made by the easy classic muffin method:
- Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
- Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir only until the dry ingredients are moistened
The batter will be slightly lumpy, but that’s OK. Overmixing makes the muffins tough.
For our shortcut recipe, I’ve chosen the delicious Blueberry White Chocolate Macadamia Muffins. It’s simple – make the mix according to the package directions. Stir in white baking chips and salted macadamias. Bake muffins according to package directions. Let cool completely and drizzle melted white chocolate over the muffin tops.
If you want to make muffins from scratch with white chocolate and macadamias, you may certainly add the chips and nuts to the scratch batter and drizzle with the topping as directed in the muffin mix recipe. With either recipe, you’ll have delicious muffins for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack.
