Searching for delicious and easy breakfast idea ?! This blueberry muffins recipes will soon become your favorite breakfast recipe keeper!
Unbelievable! I looked at all my posts again from my first blogging days and saw a very surprising fact for me. Among the 45 recipes that I posted until now, there is no recipe for muffins!
“OMG, is that impossible” I thought to myself! Until a year ago, you could not imagine my kitchen without the smell of muffins. Since my cupcakes mania began with the blog Cupcakes Garden, every time when I got something out my cupcakes pan, the result was always cupcakes, not muffins!
“Hmm, maybe I could try chocolate frosting” I thought to myself one time. Another time it would be a variation with strawberries and white frosting and so on and so on. Little by little my (at one time adored) muffins became the past.
“It’s not fair” I thought to myself a few days ago and decided to make an apology to my dear old muffins. In the time when I made them often, on my repertoire were usually beautiful chocolate muffins, but since my blog is full of chocolate desserts, I decided to play around a little with some other flavors.
What do you say about Blueberry Muffins for breakfast tomorrow? I proposed to my husband.
“Hmmm a really good idea. You haven’t made them for years. I could really use a change in my menu” concluded Darko, who always made quick sandwiches while being in a hurry about something for work.
And so, late into the night, after a long, long time, the smell of Blueberry Muffins covered with beautiful streusel crumbs spread through the kitchen! And of course, my husband got up like a zombie, even though he went to sleep a long time before that.
“Hmmm, I’m so thirsty. And something smells here”, Darko was fooling around.
“There is nothing here for you! If you eat this, you will blame me for gaining weight again. Shouldn’t you be asleep”, I was a little rough around the edges.
“Well it’s OK, I guess one piece will not make such a big difference” he concluded while he was munching the sweet crumbs from the muffin.
Of course, you can imagine that the portion of Blueberry Muffins intended for breakfast was visibly smaller in a matter of minutes!
“I can’t wait to get up and try them” my husband was joking while going to bed again.
The only thing that maybe spoiled everything a little are my photos which this time were not on a high level, as was the level of taste of these beautiful Blueberry Muffins.
