"Catch a Man" Blueberry Muffins

One day last month I started thinking about my grandmother’s blueberry muffin recipe. I don’t believe I have made the muffins or seen the recipe since she passed away in 1998. My brother loved them, and when ever I made a batch, he told me that they would “catch me a man” some day. Well, I got a man without the muffins, however, I wanted to make them again and I had to do some hunting to find the recipe. Thankfully my aunt Maisie had the information I was looking for.

I did not make the muffins right away but was spurred to bake them after my kind neighbor, Tom, boosted my car (another story unto itself ) on a sunny Wednesday morning so I could get to Women to Women. I made the muffins to thank Tom for His kind deed. I received a good review from both Tom and his wife.

The recipe is as follows:

Cream 1/2 cup margerine and 1 & 1/4 cup of white sugar
Add: 2 eggs and mix well.
Sift: 2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of of baking powder
1/2 teasponns of salt

Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with 1/2 cup of milk.

Fold in 2 1/2 cups of blueberries

Put in muffin tins and sprinkle each muffin with white sugar ( ~ 2 teaspoons should do all 12 muffins)

Bake @ 375 for 25 minutes.

Yield: 12 muffins

Try them! Let me know if you catch a man.
