Blueberry Muffins, Blizzard of Oz 2013 Part Deux

We have a second in as many weeks snow storm keeping us indoors. School was canceled for the girls and the roads are snowy. Until they plow the neighborhoods I like to stay home because it can be a challenge getting up the hill to our house in slick conditions. I don't know how my husband does it.

Since I knew this second storm was coming I stopped for a few extra supplies on my way home from a meeting and we are going to have a bake-off. Here is the basic recipe and I will let you know some of the changes we might make to determine taste differences.

Blueberry Muffins
  • 2 cups flour, your choice
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup liquid, milk or juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter or oil
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, try to find wild, they are smaller
You can add a little vanilla extract but I usually forget. During this lovely storm we are going to bake several batches and do a taste test. We will use juice and oil for the first two batches and use an egg substitute for one and regular egg in the other. This will make one batch vegan. I am curious about the difference.

To make the muffins combine dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another. Add wet to dry and stir until just combined. Add blueberries and fold in. Scoop into 12 greased muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. 

What type of kitchen fun will you have for the Revenge of Toto 2013?

Gotta be comfortable for the stir.
