Do You Know The Blue Berry Muffin Man?

Ask a kid, I was aware of a few nursery rhymes. For example, “Mary has a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb. Mary has a little lamb whose sheet was white as snow”.

Also, we have the legendary twinkle twinkle little star. Yep, I am going to bring you back to your childhood with this one.

“Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are. Up above a world so high, like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are.”

I know I said that I knew a few nursery rhymes, but really I can go all day with these.

With that being said, there is one nursery rhyme in particular that I want to talk about, and if you have read the header, then you may have an idea of where I am going with this.

Furthermore, I just have one question to ask. Do you know the muffin man? He is a good person to know, especially when you need some homemade blueberry muffins.

Additionally, he is a kind soul, so kind that he is willing to give you this easy blueberry muffins recipe free of charge.

The cool thing about being the muffin man or woman is that anybody can take up that role. All you have to do is master the art of baking muffins.

The blueberry muffins recipe is here, on this blog, for you all to enjoy. The ingredients and instructions are provided below.

Is It Better To Use Fresh Or Frozen Blueberries For Muffins?

You can never go wrong using fresh fruits, this also includes berries, and it does not matter what type of berries you are using. Strawberry, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.

Any berry that you can think of, tastes better fresh versus being frozen.

On the contrary, if I was making a drink, some ice cream, a parfait, or anything that is best served cold, then I would use frozen berries over fresh berries.

Additionally, here is an ice cream recipe with blueberries that is so good that you will continue to eat it until you are blue in the face.

Did you see what I did there? You are going to be out here looking like a blueberry, but in a good way, though. Also, if you want a parfait filled with blueberries and strawberries, then I got you!

For those of you who want a bit of every single berry, then I have you covered with this ice cream recipe that is full of berry deliciousness.

What Is The Secret To Moist Muffins?

I am about to reveal the secret to having the moistest muffins possible. These are some of the most secretive secrets that I am about to share with you all.

This is such a secret, that at one point this secret was in the deepest crevice of Area 51. It is not like I just Google these so-called secrets.

Okay, I did, but I had to start somewhere, and these secrets work!

Foremost, do not overcook your muffins. If you have experience in the kitchen, then you probably already know this, but this is still worth mentioning.

Next, make sure that the temperature is not too hot. You do not want any muffins that are cooked on the inside but burnt on the outside.

Also, use paper liners. I do not know why it works, but it works. If you do not have paper liners, then spray whatever muffin pan that you are using so that the muffin does not stick to it.

That will also help the muffins stay nice and moist.

If you have too many blueberries, you can find blueberry recipes to try out. Any blueberries you do not use, you can freeze them, and save them for later.

Truthfully, you do not need a blueberry recipe. Just eat them as you would any other fruit.

Can I Make Blueberry Muffins With Egg?

Yes, you can make some homemade blueberry muffins with eggs. In fact, this easy blueberry muffins recipe utilizes eggs.

The reason for this is that eggs create a structure for the muffins. Also, you can consider eggs to be the glue that is keeping everything together for the muffin.

What Happens If I Eat Blueberries Every Day?

A wise person once said that you are what you eat. So, if you eat blueberries every day, then you will turn into one like the kid from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
