Mom's blueberry muffin tips

Working with Mom today to make something yummy.  Ah, muffins.  I love muffins. Haven't had muffins for a while, either. 

Mom knows good ways to modify basic recipes to made a decent muffin a really great muffin.

Blueberry muffins
1.  Take basic recipe (below; Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, 1996). 
2.  Grate the rind of one lemon to stir into batter.
3.  Substitute 1/4 cup ground almonds (Trader Joe's!) for 1/4 cup of the flour.
4.  Substitute 3T Splenda for 3T of sugar. 

5. Instead of stirring in the blueberries, fill the muffin pan about 1/4 to 1/3 way with batter. Place blueberries in the center. If the berries don't touch the pan, it will be much easier to remove the muffins and to clean the pan afterward.

6.  Put in the rest of the muffin batter, not filling to the top. 
7.  Cinnamon sugar on the top of some of them.

8.  Extra muffin batter goes into the mini loaf pan.  Sliced almonds on top!
