I’m not certain if the blueberries will be ripe. I sure hope to find a few handfuls! This recipe was submitted by my Aunt Twila, who must have heard through the grapevine that I’m heading to Isle Royale soon. I will probably use wheat-flour, as I like the healthy, nutty flavor of whole grain muffins.
2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar (or maybe honey?)
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
l cup milk
1/2 Tbsp. vanilla
1/2 Tbsp. almond extract (I won’t have this, but I am bringing almonds!)
1 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 350* F. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. until well blended. In another bowl combine oil, egg, milk, vanilla until well blended. Pour liquid mixture into middle of flour mixture and stir until NOT QUITE ALL BLENDED. Add BLUEBERRIES and GENTLY finish combining. Be careful not to over-mix. Just until blended. Spoon batter into Muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. About 20 min.
Offer muffins to kayakers and researchers who pass by!
