Blueberry Muffins

My sister called me from California this past week and asked me for my recipe for blueberry muffins. I told her that she could go to my blog. She said that she did and these were not on there.  I couldn’t believe it, so I had to check myself. She was right. I make two different types of blueberry muffins, a dense version and a light version depending on the ingredients I have on hand. Don’t mistake this for my blueberry bread that was posted in the past. That is made with sour cream, which is amazing, but two different types of products. So, here is one version. My preference is the denser of two.
