Warm Cinnamon-Spiced Blueberry Cake
And now, these amazingly light Blueberry Muffins, courtesy of Julia Child's Baking with Julia. Rick Katz is the contributing baker for this recipe. This is one of my all-time favorite cookbooks. I can always tell my favorite cookbooks from those that are just okay by the number of dog-eared pages, pages stuck together, and notes in the margins. This book has all of those hallmarks and more. Julia Child was a master! And, I love that she didn't find her passion until later in life...gives hope to all of us who may still be looking.
|mise en place|
|for cupcakes, the blueberries get covered in flour, which keeps them mixed|
evenly throughout the batter instead of falling to the bottom as they bake
|creaming the butter and suger|
|wet and dry ingredients added...|
|and mixed well|
|then the blueberries are gently stirred in|
|scooped into the muffin papers|
|and baked until golden brown|

|an amazingly light and tender crumb|
Bye for now...
