Twice the milk makes a fantastic blueberry cake! I accidentally used twice as much milk, so I poured it into a pan and baked for 20 min, hoping for the best. Out came the most delicious blueberry cake I've ever had.
Oh my....heaven! These mildly sweet and moist muffins are better than the ones that are sold at the local coffee store! You should have heard us ooohhing and aahhhing while we ate these this morning for breakfast. I baked the muffins for 25 minutes and the only thing that I did differently is that I topped the muffins with a generous sprinkle of sugar in the raw. This is the best recipe that I've tried so far from Recipezaar!
These are very good and quite unique. Not really a muffin. By utilizing the creaming method then alternating the flour and milk they are really a yellow cup cake with blueberries.
