Do You Know The Muffin Kids?

Last night my body shut down after only getting 3-4 hours sleep for the past 2 weeks. It (my body) screamed "WILL YOU PLEASE GET SOME REST!" I did and two of my littlest sous chefs made, from scratch, mini blueberry muffins without any help from me.

There are no major injuries to report. So I've taught them well.

Blueberry Muffins: (Martha Stewart)

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for tins
3 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1 large egg
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 3/4 cups blueberries

Directions: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.butter large (3 3/4 inches) or small (2 3/4 inches) muffin tins, and set aside. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg, egg yolks, and vanilla; mix until well combined. Reduce speed to low; alternate adding reserved flour mixture and milk to mixer, beginning and ending with flour. Remove bowl from mixer; gently fold in berries by hand. Divide batter among muffin tins; sprinkle generously with sugar. Bake until light golden, about 45 minutes for large muffins, about 30 minutes for small muffins. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove from pan; transfer to wire rack, and let cool completely.

*sous chefs nancy and will said after they poured the batter into the muffin tins they added extra blueberries into each one before cooking.

The little sous chefs did a good job as you can tell from the above picture. The muffins are almost gone.

Hi, just found your site and am really enjoying it so far.

Your sous chefs have done a wonderful job on the muffins, and you've done a wonderful job with the photos! :)

I'll be stopping in again!
