Feels like I’ve been baking more than usual lately… going through my flour, sugar, butter and eggs much faster than I usually do. Yet… it seems like everything is vanishing! Where does it go? OH! I know! into the BEST Blueberry Muffins & Streusel Topping EVER!
Of course, with the kids back in school, you’d think that food would stick around longer… but no. They eat breakfast, take stuff for lunch, add an extra after-school-before-practice snack, then add a few extras for their friends, and of course, they need a after-practice-dinner-is-a-whole-20-minutes-away snack to keep them from passing out from hunger.
It’s all good.
You know how sometimes you get into ruts or cycles? Well, this week I’m on a breakfast baking binge. It must be related to the kids going back to school. I feel that the good mother would have something besides cereal for them before they leave… but this mom can’t seem to get up early enough to make eggs or pancakes (besides… my people aren’t early risers, they are more “grab something as they run out the door types”… clearly, a family trait)… and it’s hard for the kids to juggle eggs and school books as they run for the bus.
And a muffin gives you that quick burst of energy without making you feel logey like a bag of chips. Better for soccer-volleyball-cross-country-hanging-on-street-corners practice….
ANYWAY…. Muffins… I love Blueberry Streusel Muffins.
Granted, they are at their delicious peak about 15 minutes after you pull them out of the oven… but… (we already talked about the early rising thing)…I find that I can easily make them the night before, and then (here’s the sneaky kicker) put them in a warm oven for a few minutes in the morning. Ahhhhh
House smells good, kids get nice warm Blueberry Streusel Muffins…. and we all get to sneak in that extra few minutes of sleep.
