I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow! When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago! I suddenly feel antiquated…. These muffins are easy to whip up, slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries. Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.
I just love the old church fundraising cookbooks. I tend to read all cookbooks like a book. Turning each dogeared, stained page with loving care. Hugging the memories that flood back from gifts of love. Love and miss my grandma and her amazing food.
She never cooked from a recipe, she used a tea cup to scoop dry ingredients. Wet ingredients were poured without worry. Spices were measured by tired fingers and hands that never stopped working.
Okay..I’m feeling a little melancholy today…must be the weather all damp and gloomy. ~sigh~ Let’s make some muffins to brighten the day, shall we? Oh, the cookbook is Heavenly Delights from Hopewell, Moultrie, Georgia. I googled and could not find a link back.
