I’m a HUGE Costco/BJ’s fan. Can’t beat their prices when you’re buying in bulk for a big family or a party. We had a BBQ last weekend and I loaded up on fruit for the kiddies – strawberries, blueberries and grapes. The one problem with trips to the warehouse stores is that inevitably food is left over that we can’t eat before it gets bad. This time we had extra blueberries so I started searching for a way to use them up without running to the store to buy more ingredients!
Ready for the easiest recipe in the world?
Take blueberries and dip them in yogurt (I had Go-Gurt squeeze tubes on hand so I poured into a cup and dipped). Don’t worry about making it perfect, it all will taste good in the end!
Place onto baking sheet (I used my favorite silicone liner, Silpat).
Freeze baking sheet for one hour and then place in baggie. Keep frozen unless eating. Enjoy! I know my kids did!
12 1/2 ounces cake flour1 teospoan baking soda2 teospoans baking powderHeavy pinch salt1 cup sugar1/2 cup vegetable oil1 egg1 cup yogurt1 1/2 cups fresh blueberriesVegetable spray, for the muffin tinsPreheat oven to 380 degrees F.In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, egg and yogurt. Add the dry ingredients reserving 1 tablespoon of the dry ingredients and toss with the blueberries. Stir mixture for a count of 10. Add 1 cup blueberries to mixture and stir 3 more times. Reserve the 1/2 cup of blueberries. Using a #20 ice cream scoop, add the mixture to greased muffin pans. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of berries on top of muffins and press down lightly. Place into the oven and increase the temperature to 400 degrees. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Remove from oven and turn out, upside down on tea towel to cool completely. Serve immediately or store in airtight container for 2 to 3 days.You can add any berry in place of blueberries. You can use sour milk, cup of milk and 1TB vingar and let srand for 10 mins a least.
