Shirley's Plain or Blueberry Muffins

Muffins don't come any better than these :) If you want to make regular muffins, you can leave out the blueberries and just decrease the sugar, as stated in the recipe. Don't be afraid to use blackberries, raspberries, or strawberries for a change instead of blueberries too... No kiddin' these are GREAT! I love mine with a nice hot cup of cocoa... YUM!

These were so delicious. I made them with blueberries I froze a few months back. They were moist and definatly moreish! I had 2 with my morning coffee and DH had 3. I will have to try them plain with some butter and raspberry jam. Yum!

These are a great base for making anybother kind of muffin you want. I added vanilla, almond extract, and cinnamon chips. I made 24 mini muffins by baking at 350 for 15m.
