Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins.

Happy National Breakfast Week! We all know how important breakfast is. It’s the most important meal of the day for goodness sake. What is National Breakfast week all about you ask? Glad you did. National Breakfast weeks aims to encourage parents, students and school officials to start their morning with a healthy breakfast. While we all know it’s important sometimes we just don’t. In celebration of this effort, we’re sharing these easy dairy-centric bakery style blueberry muffins that anyone can easily mix up PLUS they’re made using REAL® dairy products . REAL whole milk and REAL butter. Who wants artificial when you can have the REAL®  deal. There is a difference and you can taste it.
Blueberry Muffins

Bakery style means the muffins are bigger, pumped up if you will, and have that coveted nice and crunchy (because crusty just sounds wrong) top on them. The top just so happens to be my favorite part. So if you happen to come over and the tops are missing off of them, you’ll know who to blame.

A key to making these muffins turn out night and airy on the inside is to NOT over mix the batter. Just mix enough until it’s combined. Then put the spoon down and step away. No one wants heavy, dense muffins. The batter will be thick and scoop able. An ice cream scoop works wonders here. Fill the liners up. Don’t be shy. We’re going for large and in charge bakery style after all.

    “Put the spoon down and walk away.” Love it!

    My fave breakfast item these days is waffles. For years, I wouldn’t eat them, simply because my mother didn’t like waffles. It was one of those things you always do (or in this case, don’t do) because your parents did/didn’t do them. I’m SO glad I’m branching out from that, because waffles are AMAZING!! I want a waffle maker now, so I can waffle-ize EVERYTHING!
