"To Die For" Blueberry Muffins — Almost

_uacct = “UA-4592782-1”;

When I saw this recipe on BrownEyedChef’s blog, I knew I had to try it. I’m batty for blueberry muffins, and I am continuing my quest to find the perfect one.

This muffin was VERY VERY close to perfect…I think my only real problem with it was the crumble mixture on top — mine didn’t crumble…and it had some issues. Or rather, I had issues with it (I think I just let my butter get too soft before I made the crumble mix)

I think next time I’ll just sprinkle with some large-granule sugar, and call it deliciousness. But, in the interest of the perfectionist that I am, I’ll continue trying blueberry muffin recipes to find the “perfect” one!

Apologies for the bad image — I was in a hurry on Sunday, and I knew if I didn’t get a picture right out of the oven that DH would have them all eaten before I could try.

Apparently, in addition to walking away from my butter and letting it get warm, I also had uneven muffins. Bah. Who cares, they taste good. đŸ™‚
