Blueberry Muffins

When my girls were 2 years old, they watch Barney everyday and in that series, I like the Muffin Man song. Somehow or the other I sing that song everyday... I donno why but I like to sing that song. Whenever we go out to lunch or dinner at Sweet Tomatoes, I eat this blueberry muffins there with a dallop of butter. Their muffins are really moist and soft...Even though my muffins were not that professional, it came out pretty good. Recipe I followed to make this muffins...

Ingredients:-
  1. All Purpose flour - 1 cup
  2. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  3. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  4. Egg - 1
  5. Milk - 1/2 cup
  6. White sugar - 3/4 cup (acc to taste)
  7. Blue Berries - 3/4 cup ***
  8. Margarine - little less than 1/4 cup
  9. Vanilla Extract - 1/2 tsp
  10. All purpose flour - little less than 1/4 cup

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin tins, or line cups with paper liners. Sprinkle little less than 1/4 cup flour over blueberries, and stir to coat berries thoroughly. In a small bowl, whisk together a cups of all purpose flour(ingredient 1), baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream margarine, and gradually mix sugar. Beat egg and stir into creamed mixture along with vanilla. Stir in milk alternately with flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Fold in berries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake for 25 mts. The above said ingredient is enough for 12 muffins...

*** - I used a full cup of fresh blueberries, but that was too much for the muffins.
