Blueberry Tower Muffins

Starting a new job soon and will not have as much time to bake as I would like. Oh well, there is always the weekends except that next weekend is all filled up with projects and wedding. Don't you just love summer? Speaking of, what is summer without the berries and blueberries at that. Love those tiny pearls of yumminess especially when transformed into Blueberry Tower Muffins. Its namesake probably explain everything. These muffins rise so high, hence, tower. I love the light airy texture of the muffins compared to the other denser versions of muffins. Sorry, no step-by-step pictures this time cos I have forgotten to snap any while I was making them.

  1. Reese, I have made this before but mine came out pathetic. Yours look so much prettier than mine. Same here, I prefer more fluffy texture then dense. I am going to make this again using your recipe. Congrats on the new job. Blog whenever you get the time. I will be stalking you!! hehe

  2. Veronica: Please give it a try. I'll say if you like it sweet, you can add another 3 Tbsp of sugar to it. Mine came out just right but then again, we don't like our muffins too sweet anyways :p
