Small Batch Blueberry Muffins

March 23, 2020

Hello foodies and bakers,

 

Small batch is hot right now. Why? You can bake a few, NEW, baked goods and bake something completely different the next day. It is perfect for a time like this when you are home and are aching for some tasty homemade treats. 

 

PLUS, it is great if you live solo or only have 1 or 2 foodies living with you. You will not have 2 dozen cookies or 12 frosted cupcakes lying around the home. Rest assured, all the goodies will be happily consumed. 

 

These blueberry muffins are super moist, tender, and perfect in the morning with a cup of joe. Best of all, these are super easy to make and the recipe can be easily adjusted.
