A recipe! Me, who-does-not-cook (although I do like to bake), wanted blueberry muffins but didn’t have a boxed mix on hand. I do have fresh blueberries from this summer (frozen, just waiting to be sacrificed for such a delicious cause), but am entirely too lazy (and hungry) to make “from scratch” muffins. So this is what I did:

2 c. Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake mix
1 c. water
¾ c. sugar
1 egg
2 Tbs. oil

Stir just till mixed.
Fold in 1 c. fresh blueberries

Bake in an 8 mini-loaf pan @ 400 F for 13-15 mins with convection turned on (I have a convection oven, but without it, just cook yours a little longer). [edited: for regular muffins, don't use convection - it browned the tops too fast]

In like 20 mins from start to finish I was eating HOMEMADE blueberry muffins (OK, loaves) with melting butter and crumby goodness. I am now free to use this “recipe” with any mix-ins! Chocolate chips! Huckleberries! Raspberries and orange zest and diced apples and bananas (I love to spell b-a-n-a-n-a-s, it makes me laugh) and coconut and pineapple and pecans (oh gosh I LOVE pecans) and the list goes on…da-da-dant-da-dant-da-da (eminem fans will get it :)
Happy eats, my peeps! LOL, I slay me! [ t ]

[edited: I tried it and 1 c. chocolate chips was too much! Try 1/2 c. mini chips, unless you WANT death by chocolate]
