I rarely bake for myself--it's always for someone else. This morning I baked muffins for me. I hoarded the last box of local fresh blueberries to make blueberry muffins. I changed out the flour with all white whole wheat flour and added an extra 1/4 t. of baking powder to help with the heavier flour to keep them light. I changed out the refined sugar with some organic raw sugar--nearly used agave nectar but decided to go with the sugar. I don't like muffins in liners--I like the crunch of the sides so I seasoned the pan and baked them until golden brown. I turned them on their side to cool and avoid soggy bottoms. I will miss the Oregon blueberries (at least fresh) until next season.
