Blueberry Muffins

WOW!!! It's spring. What a great time to go out and buy blueberries. This recipe won a Blue Ribbon at the New Mexico State Fair. I love blueberries!!! Remember Lots of Love comes from all your Heart n Soul.

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease twelve 3-by-1-1/2 inch muffin cups.

In a medium bowl mix together

1 cup melted butter
1 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice
2 eggs, lightly beaten

In a large bowl stir together

3 cups all propose flour
4-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Add butter ingredients to dry ingredients and mix lightly, just until moistened. Fold in

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries.

Spoon mixture evenly into prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle evenly over muffins

2 tablespoons sugar

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted in center of one muffin comes out clean.

Yields: 12 large muffins

Helpful Hints:

This is a great time to buy blueberries. Buy them and wash gently, pat dry. Place the blueberries on a cookie sheet put in the freezer until frozen. Remove from freezer and put in a zip-lock bags. Freeze until needed. This perverts them from clopping together.
Blackberries are great in this recipe.
You can also use lemon juice instead of orange juice.
