I've had a long time total obsession with blueberries.
I'm pretty sure it started sometime at a very early age, like as soon as I could eat any type of solid food I was shoving the little blue gems in my mouth.
Granny always had a few blueberry bushes growing in the back yard that I nibbled off the ripe fruit daily during the summer.
I don't know how but she always seemed to stock pile enough blueberries in the freezer to keep a winter supply of the sweet little berries available for Blueberry Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce and Blueberry Muffins.
The 2 things I really liked to eat as a kid other then Puff Pancakes for breakfast.
I love the smell of the warm muffins fresh out of the oven, it always reminds me of the wonderfully, amazing woman who inspired me to cook.
These muffins are for you Granny, warm out of the oven smothered in butter just like the ones you would make for me!
Cream butter or coconut oil with brown and granulated sugar.
Scrape sides of bowl as needed.
Add eggs one at a time beating well between each addition.
Add vanilla because vanilla makes everything taste and smell amazing!
Dump in milk and sour cream. Mix until well incorporated.
Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon (optional). Mix until well combined and scrape sides of bowl.
Add flour and mix until combined.
Add blueberries and fold in.
I usually don't eat batter but on this morning it looks particularly tempting.
Line muffins tins with liners or grease well with butter. Fill muffin tins 2/3 of the way full with batter.
Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center to muffin comes out clean.
We like them plain or with a pat of butter but if your feeling particularly naughty feel free to drizzle a little honey over your butter.
