Blueberry Muffins

The first thing I baked in our new apartment were these Blueberry Muffins.

Just look at that blueberry juice, it seeps into the muffin adding to the melt in your mouth texture.  They are perfect for a summer morning, warm and gooey.  The blueberries are little surprises of juicy flavor.  The tart berries are accented by the browned butter, there isn’t much sweetness to them but plenty of flavor.

Before the baking begins.  Look at that brown color, it’s the browned butter. Yum.

Fresh out of the oven.  A little over done, still getting use to the new oven, but still delicious.

Our new kitchen has a decent amount of counter space as well as two windows that let in plenty of natural light.  R and I painted it teal, after a lot of discussion.  The walls are now bold and cheerful, and makes me want to find a little table and chairs so I can sit by the window with one of these muffins and a cup of coffee and gaze out the window at our friendly little street.

Onto the muffins!
