About this recipe: I am delighted with how these blueberry muffins have turned out. They really are a delicious treat to be enjoyed with a cuppa when you can grab 5 minutes peace. As an aside, I'm quite pleased with the photograph too! I never knew how difficult it was to capture in a photograph the aesthetics of cooking.
