Blueberry Muffins – Bolos de Mirtilo
Home made Blueberry Muffins are the best and with blueberry season here they will taste even better. I make a crumb topping for my muffins but his is optional to your taste.
“Mirtilo”, is the name for blueberries in Portuguese, but the fruit is barely known there. In fact, most countries around the world have never ever seen or heard of the fruit.
The biggest producers of blueberries are the US and Chile but, blueberry production has exploded around the world since the benefits of blueberries as antioxidants. was discovered a few years ago.
Here’s the easy recipe for 12 large muffins

1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cup quick cooking oats (if desired)
2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
Instructions for batter:

In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar and eggs for 1 minute until foamy. Add the remaining ingredients except toppings and mix on low for about 1 minute. The batter will be slightly lumpy.
Grease muffin tins very generously with
Rinse and dry berries. Coat them with a dusting of the biscuit mix or flour and gently fold into the batter. Pour evenly into the tins.
Cook for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Instructions for crumb topping:
