Remember the milk man who talked my great-grandmother into buying buttermilk by giving her the pancake and biscuit recipes? Well, he gave her this one, too. (I think he was kind of sweet on her). Anyway these muffins have been a family staple for five generations and for many years was our traditional Christmas breakfast bread.
Unlike the rest of my family, I’m not really much of a breakfast eater, I’m just not hungry until several hours after I’ve been up and working. So I do not do eggs, bacon, potatoes and the like for breakfast, however I do like the foods of breakfast so will make them for dinner occasionally. That said, I like a simple continental breakfast, like the one I had this morning. Coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice and blueberry muffins with butter. A very pleasant way to enjoy the Sunday paper.
These muffins are, quick, easy and very tasty as well as quite pretty on the table. Enjoy!
