4. Add flour mixture to above and fold in (do not go crazy with mixing)
5. Fold blueberries into muffin mixture. Then spoon mix into cupcake liners
6. Bake for 25-30 min until they rice and are firm and brown. Cool on rack.

This recipe is modified from a raspberry muffin recipe from DK Children's Quick & Easy Cook Book by Angela Wilkes. I picked it up because it was very colorful and has step by step pictures/directions. Unfortunately it is neither quick nor easy especially when most things are made from scratch. Totally worth it though, not sure if I can go back to store bought muffins. Next step, find out how to make lemon-poppy muffin from scratch yay!
