Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Blueberry Crumb Muffins
Well, lets just say tt i had never had a penchant for baking muffins. as compared to cupcakes, these were duller, less sweet and more wholesome in a way tt didn't quite reach out to me since i had a nagging sweet tooth 24/7. however, with the purchased pint of fresh blueberries calling out to me from the fridge. i knew that i just had to find the perfect blueberry muffin recipe to do these lovely little exhorbitantly prized violet beauties justice... meanwhile, figured tt a muffin recipe would do wonders in accentuating the flavors of the star player blueberries better than some flowery sacharrine cake recipe.

Finally settled on a recipe after much contemplation and several modifications. Inspired by Jaycynth's recipe for Blueberry Crumb Muffins taken from the the recipe produced moist muffins with a sweet brown sugar crumb, perfect for a late night snack coupled with a towering glass of cold milk before settling in for the night. tear the muffin apart with your fingers and enjoy the explosion of purple juices within the moist cake as the blueberries burst spreading its exburant shades of purple all around.

  4. For the crumb topping, mix together flour, softened butter, cinammon and brown sugar. place a small amount on top of each muffin.
  5. Bake muffins in oven for 20-30 mins (i used 25mins), or until skewer comes out clean and dry.
  6. Tuck in!!!

Also, I have just returned from watching the movie' The Leap Years'... i must admit tt i'm very impressed. one of the better local productions i've seen in a long time. Catherine Lim has outdone herself with a simple yet heartfelt storyline with a convincing cast to boot. All in all, the movie is a wonderful film to indulge in with loved ones and close frens. beware.. bring some tissue paper alone for the teary eyed!

Movie rating: 4/5
