Sourdough Blueberry Muffins

Sourdough Blueberry Muffins

There is nothing better,
than getting up early on a Saturday morning,
sitting down at the table and
enjoying a homemade blueberry muffin...
straight out of the oven.
add a hot, steaming cup of coffee ...perfect....

This recipe is another wonderful recipe from the cookbook:
 "Simply Sourdough ~The Alaska Way~ by Kathy Doogan.

This recipe uses a sourdough starter to make blueberry muffins.
Who doesn't like Blueberry Muffins.
I used my Jumbo Muffin tin pan to make these delicious muffins.
