Looking to start your morning off with a tasty combination of sweet seasonal blueberries, fluffy cake-like muffin, and crispy cinnamon-flavored sugar topping? Well, who wouldn’t want to start their morning that way? Pair these delicious treats with your favorite coffee to start your day!
I’m picky about my breakfast. I figure I’m allowed to be, since it’s such an important part of jump-starting my day. For roughly 23 years now, I’ve been getting up at 5am, do some kind of work-out, shower, grab coffee, grab a meal, and get to work. Now that I’m a mom and teleworking, there’s a little more play time with my little man and a lot less commuting built in there, but a good breakfast is an important part of that well-established wake-up routine.
And by good I mean something nice and hot and not too heavy. With a cold breakfast or a shake, I want something else within about two hours and my breakfast needs to tide me over until 10am at least, after my first rush of meetings and phone calls. With a heavy breakfast, I want to crawl back into bed and hibernate.
So keeping all those things in mind, I’ve been working on creating a muffin that will support all those requirements. There’s nothing like a nice fresh hot muffin with your morning coffee. But so many muffin recipes come out heavy and cakey and you feel like you’ve just swallowed a bowling ball.
Not this muffin, though. This one is light and fluffy and delicious, with just a little buttery goodness in the taste. And filled with nice fresh blueberries and topped with just a little bit of that crunchy sugary cinnamon flavored goodness you have with a coffee cake, it’s the perfect morning starter!
