I’ve never been a huge fan of cake – but every now and then I get a hankering for a blueberry muffin! If you can’t find fresh blueberries on sale in your local grocery store – feel free to use frozen ones – they work just as well! Topped with a dusting of sugar, these muffins have a light crisp on the outside and loaded with super moist cake and juicy blueberries on the inside! One bite and you’ll remember what makes blueberry muffins a timeless classic!
