Banana Blueberry Muffins

Classic Banana Blueberry Muffins

A couple of weeks ago, I was working to refine my muffin recipes. They did not have quite the rise as I wanted them to have. The flavor was good, but I really felt I could improve on these so I began experimenting with a base muffin recipe. The results were a perfectly round top muffin with a wonderful cake-like texture. Made with everyday ingredients, it’s so easy to make a batch of these for breakfast or an afternoon snack with coffee or tea! Leave a comment to let me know what you think!
